CAIRO, Sept. 1 (UPI) -- The Muslim Brotherhood said Sunday it won't give up its efforts to regain political control of Egypt.

The Brotherhood said it would keep protesting despite a police crackdown on them since the military's ouster of Mohamed Morsi from the presidency two months ago, the Egyptian newspaper al-Masry al-Youm reported.

"No time for sleeping and rest until we restore the revolution," the Islamist political group said in its statement in which the military leaders were called "thieves of revolutions."

Nine security personnel and protesters died in last week's demonstrations calling for the restoration of the country's democratically elected leadership. The Brotherhood said the protesters were "expressing their rejection of the bloody coup" and would not rest until the military regime is toppled, the newspaper said.
