CAIRO: A court order to detain ousted president Mohamed Morsi for alleged crimes during the 2011 revolt that toppled Hosni Mubarak signalled that the regime of the former strongman was "back in full force" in Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood said Friday.

"The accusations read as if they're a retaliation from the old regime, signalling 'We're back in full force," Brotherhood spokesman Gehad El-Haddad told AFP.
