CAIRO (AP) - Egypt's state news agency says the country's administrative court has dissolved the political party of the banned Muslim Brotherhood and ordered its assets liquidated.

The decision Saturday against the Freedom and Justice Party comes after a recommendation by the court's advisory panel that noted the party's leaders had already been accused, and in some cases convicted, of murder and inciting violence.

The recommendation added that the police investigation stated the party headquarters and offices were used to store weapons.

The government declared the Brotherhood a terrorist group late last year, accusing it of orchestrating a wave of violence to destabilize the country after the military overthrew President Mohammed Morsi, a Brotherhood member.

The party was founded in 2011 and went on to dominate subsequent legislative elections.
