Riyadh - Saudi Arabia on Friday listed the Muslim Brotherhood of deposed Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi as a terrorist organisation, along with Syria's two main jihadist groups, according to Al-Arabiya television network.

The jihadists listed are Al-Nusra Front, which is Al-Qaeda's official Syrian affiliate, and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), a rogue group fighting in both Syria and Iraq.
