CAIRO: Egyptian protesters set fire to the Muslim Brotherhood's main headquarters in Cairo on Thursday after storming the large villa, a spokesman for Islamist movement told AFP.

"Two hundred thugs went to the headquarters. Security tried to prevent them, but some got through the back door, ransacked it and set it on fire. It is still burning now," Brotherhood spokesman Mahmud Ghozlan said.

A security official said the fire was limited and police had pushed the protesters away from the seat of the Islamist movement which backed Mohamed Morsi for the presidency.

The protest came as the president gave a televised address to the nation in which said he would not tolerate killings or sabotage but would respect free speech.
