Several Egyptian rights groups are accusing the country's ruling military council of using "Hosni Mubarak-era repressive tools" in waging an "unprecedented campaign" against pro-democracy organizations.
The groups' joint statement on Friday came just hours after security forces stormed offices of 10 rights organizations, including several based in the U.S.
The military, which took over control after a popular uprising toppled Mubarak in February, has previously accused the groups of fomenting protests with the help of foreign funding.
The statement, signed by 28 Egyptian rights groups, says the attacks herald a wider clampdown to target those who led the uprising and were an attempt to "liquidate" those behind the revolution.
