Mohammed Badie 'arrest' TV footage aired

The spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, General Guide Mohammed Badie, has been arrested in Cairo, Egyptian officials say.

Reports said he was detained at a residential flat in Nasr City.

A state of emergency is in force in Egypt amid turmoil following a crackdown on Islamists in which hundreds have died.

Mr Badie had been on the run as interim authorities in Egypt try to suppress protests against the ousting of Mr Morsi.

His arrest comes days after his son Ammar Badie, 38, was shot dead during protests in the capital's Ramses Square.
