CAIRO, March 18 (Reuters) - Islamists loyal to deposed President Mohamed Mursi said on Tuesday that Egyptian security forces prevented them from holding a news conference about the deaths of hundreds of Muslim Brotherhood members last year.

A pro-Mursi alliance said on its Facebook page that police stormed a building where they were due to respond to a government-appointed panel on the deaths at a Cairo protest camp. Reuters witnesses said police vans surounded the area. (Reporting by Yasmine Saleh, Writing by Michael Georgy, Editing by Angus MacSwan)
