The Islamist Hamas rulers of the Gaza Strip slammed Egypt on Friday after a court ordered ousted president Mohamed Morsi be detained for questioning over suspected collaboration with the Palestinian militant group.

"Hamas condemns this move since it is based on the premise that the Hamas movement is hostile," spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri told AFP.

"This is a dangerous development, which confirms that the current powers in Egypt are giving up on national causes and even using these issues to deal with other parties -- first among them the Palestinian cause."
