Egypt forces arrest Brotherhood leader's guards
« on: July 01, 2013, 05:07:20 PM »
CAIRO - Egyptian security forces arrested 15 armed bodyguards of the number two in the ruling Muslim Brotherhood, Khairat El-Shater, on Monday after an exchange of fire in which no one was injured, security sources said.

The Brotherhood's political party, the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), denied the report, and quoted Shater as saying his private driver had been kidnapped after shooting in the area.

The sources said the shootout occurred when security forces went to arrest the guards for alleged unlawful possession of firearms they are suspected of having used to shoot at protesters attacking the Brotherhood's headquarters on Sunday.

Eight people were killed and more than a dozen injured in clashes around the Brotherhood building on a suburban hilltop overlooking Cairo.

Shater's family telephoned Al Jazeera television station to report that his home was under attack.

Nice find! Saw it on twitter, but couldn't find a reliable source at the time.

Hopefully Egyptian citizenry is finging out it isn't so great being under the rule of the MB.
