Egypt Muslim Brotherhood Arrest

Duration:
29 minutes
First broadcast:
Tuesday 20 August 2013

We'll be live in Egypt where the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, Mohammed Badie, has been arrested in Cairo. Egyptian state media say he was detained at an apartment in Nasr City, the location of one of the two huge sit-ins by supporters of the deposed president, Mohammed Morsi, which the security forces cleared last week with hundreds of deaths. We'll be speaking to members of the Muslim Brotherhood and also discussing the significance of the arrest.
