CAIRO, Sept. 24 (UPI) -- The Muslim Brotherhood, which claims ousted Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi as a member, says it will move its media operations to London.

The announcement came after a court in Cairo banned activities by the group or any group related to it, al-Masry al-Youm reported Tuesday.

The Muslim Brotherhood already has a research center in London that runs the organization. The center published a weekly journal that explains the Muslim Brotherhood's stance on current events and pushes its ideas for reform.

In a statement, the media office termed the court's decision to dissolve the Muslim Brotherhood "exclusionary" and "revengeful."
