An Egyptian court has banned the April 6 youth movement that helped engineer the 2011 uprising that led to the ouster of longtime autocratic President Hosni Mubarak. The ruling is seen by activists as part of a government- orchestrated campaign to stifle opposition and dissent. The court in Cairo ruled in a suit filed by a lawyer who demanded the banning of the group over allegations it "tarnished the image of the Egyptian state" and conspired against the country's national interests. Leaders of April 6 — Ahmed Maher and Mohammed Adel — have been jailed for violating a new protest law that requires that any demonstration must have a police permit. less
