Protesters storm Muslim Brotherhood HQ

- +

Protesters stormed and ransacked the Cairo headquarters of President Mohammed Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood group early Monday, in an attack that could spark more violence as demonstrators gear up for a second day of mass rallies aimed at forcing the Islamist leader from power. 

The headquarters of the ruling Muslim Brotherhood party was burnt and looted.

An Associated Press journalist at the scene said protesters managed to breach the compound's defences and storm the six-story building, and later carted off furniture, files, rugs, blankets, air conditioning units and portraits of Morsi. One protester emerged with a pistol and handed it over to a policeman outside.
