Egypt: 32 members of Muslim Brotherhood detained
Egyptian police have detained 32 Muslim Brotherhood members over the past two days, the Islamists and security officials said on Wednesday. Twelve men were arrested in raids on Wednesday morning in Fayoum province south of Cairo for suspected involvement in an attempt to bring medical supplies to Gaza earlier this month, the Brotherhood said on its website.
On Tuesday, police arrested 14 Brotherhood members in the Mediterranean town of Port Said, another five in Cairo and one in Beni Sueif, also south of the capital, on similar grounds, the Brotherhood said, according to AFP. Egyptian police detained more than 30 activists earlier this month when they organised a convoy of medical supplies to Rafah.
