Son of Egypt's Morsi arrested for drug possession   2014-03-01 21:11:05            

CAIRO, March 1 (Xinhua) -- A son of Egypt's ousted president Mohamed Morsi was arrested Saturday in possession of hashish in a Cairo western suburb, official news agency MENA reported.

In a car with tinted windows, Abdullah, Morsi's youngest son, was arrested along with another person smoking hashish cigarettes, MENA quoted an interior ministry source as saying.

Abdullah confessed his possession of the drug and the two persons were referred to the prosecution for further investigations.

Meanwhile, Morsi's elder son Ousama posted on his twitter account that his brother was kidnapped by the police and the charges were fabricated.

"The incident of kidnapping and then arresting Abdullah Morsi is to defame the honest people," Ousama said, noting the charges are very funny and absurd.
