CAIRO: Security forces in Alexandria arrested Monday Ali Abdallah, media secretary of the Freedom and Justice Party in Ismailia, Youm7 reported.

A security source in Alexandria Security Directorate said that police also arrested three Muslim Brotherhood members, including Khalid, son of Sabri Khalaf Allah, head of the administrative office of the Brotherhood in Ismailia, Vetogate reported.

Khalid Sabri Khalaf Allah and a number of Brotherhood leaders in Ismailia, including Mohammed Taha Wahdan, are wanted by police for several charges.

The defendants will be transported from the Alexandria Security Directorate to Ismailia to complete their trial.

Since the ousting of former President Mohamed Morsi, many Brotherhood members have been charged with being involved in or inciting violence and supporting terrorist groups.

Cairo Court of Urgent Matters issued a ruling in February binding the government to make a legal provision defining the Brotherhood as a terrorist group.

Prime Minister Ibrahim Mahlab issued a decree on April 8 enforcing a Dec. 25, 2013 ruling which designated the Brotherhood as a terrorist organization, applying legal penalties to anyone who joins or continues to be a member of the group.
