CAIRO: Security forces in Upper Egypt’s governorate of Qena arrested four people; allegedly belong to the Muslim Brotherhood group on Friday, Youm7 reported.

The suspects are charged with joining a banned group, inciting riots and violence against policemen, army personnel and state institutions.

Earlier this month, Egypt’s security forces arrested six members of the group accused of assassinating Attorney General Hisham Barakat in June. The prosecution ordered their detention for 15 days pending investigation, state news agency MENA reported.

“The suspects face charges including premeditated murder of the late public prosecutor … possessing and using explosives, and joining a terrorist group,” MENA reported.
