CAIRO (Reuters) - An Egyptian court on Tuesday banned all activities of the Palestinian Islamist group Hamas in Egypt, a judge said.

"The court has ordered the banning of Hamas work and activities in Egypt," the judge, who asked to remain anonymous, told Reuters. Hamas is an offshoot of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood, which has been declared a terrorist group.
