Egypt arresting leaders of Muslim Brotherhood

Egyptian authorities have detained seven members of the Muslim Brotherhood, Egypt's largest Islamic opposition group. The arrests on Monday, which included three senior leaders, were part of a security crackdown on the organisation, Abdel Moneim Abdel-Maksoud, the group's lawyer, said. A security official, who was not authorised to speak to the media, confirmed the arrests but gave no reason. No charges were filed, Abdel-Maksoud said. More on AlJazeera
