Egyptian protesters burned two Freedom and Justice Party offices Sunday to protest the killing of an opposition activist.

Thousands attended a funeral service for Mohamed al-Shafie who was found dead for unknown reasons. Protesters then headed to the FJP headquarters in Kafr Saad village and set them on fire.

The Freedom and Justice Party has very strong ties to the country’s ruling Muslim Brotherhood.

The Egypt Independent reports that some protesters then headed to the party’s headquarters and set fire to its sign, chanting against President Mohamed Morsi and the Brotherhood. They also hurled Molotov cocktails at the governorate headquarters and set a car on fire.

Shafie went missing on Jan. 30 while taking part in rallies marking the second anniversary of the Jan. 25 revolution, The Egypt Independent reports. His body was found at the Zeinhom morgue in Cairo on Feb. 24 with shot wounds in his head and one in his chest.
