Egyptian authorities have arrested seven people in connection with a suicide bomb attack on a police station north of Cairo that killed 16 and wounded more than 130 last month.

“Seven of the accused have been arrested, most prominent is Yehya Almongi Saad al-Huseini who is the son of a Muslim Brotherhood leader,” Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim told a news conference.

Ibrahim accused Hamas of cooperating with the Brotherhood to provide logistical support to the Sinai-based jihadist group Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis that claimed responsibility for the December 24 attack in Mansoura. The army-backed government listed the Brotherhood as a terrorist organization after the attack.

Ibrahim also accused the Muslim Brotherhood of receiving military training from Hamas in the Gaza Strip.
