CAIRO: Five Muslim Brotherhood supporters were arrested while protesting in Arish Sunday, according to the Ministry of Interior’s Monday statement.
The ages of the detainees ranged between 19 and 34. They are charged with protesting without a permit.
Twelve pro-Brotherhood protesters were arrested in Beheira Sunday after the police dispersed a demonstration that was denouncing the recent death sentences handed to Brotherhood members, Youm7 reported.
Five others were arrested in Kafr el-Sheikh Sunday for illegally protesting and blocking roads, a security source told Mehwar TV.
Four alleged Brotherhood members implicated in violence were detained in Alexandria, Wadi Gedid, and Qena as per arrest warrants for inciting violence and belonging to a terrorist group, Youm7 reported.
The Egyptian government designated the Brotherhood as a terrorist organization in December after Dakahlia security directorate was bombed, killing at least 15. The Brotherhood denied responsibility over the bombing.
