Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood pledged on Monday to continue the path of struggle on the 10th anniversary of the Arab Spring protests.

In a statement, the group vowed to continue their efforts to ensure Egyptians are able to elect their rulers based on fair elections.

It said the sacrifice of the martyrs, injured and victims will never be forgotten and urged the international community to support the aspirations of the Egyptian people.

The protests on Jan. 25, 2011, led to the ouster of president Hosni Mubarak, ending his 30-year rule.

The first democratic elections in the country brought president Mohammed Morsi to power in 2012.

His rule was short lived as he was ousted through a military coup in 2013 by now President Abdelfattah al-Sisi.

Morsi died aged 67 in 2019 after he collapsed during trial.
