Egypt arrests 2 Brotherhood leaders, prepares more arrest warrants

CAIRO, July 3 (Xinhua) -- Egypt's security forces arrested two leaders of a political party of the Muslim Brotherhood late Wednesday and are preparing more arrest warrants for other members of the group, local media reported.

Mohamed Saad al-Katatni, leader of the Muslim Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party, and Rashad al-Bayoumi, deputy general guide of the group, were arrested, state-run news agency MENA said.

Meanwhile, Al-Ahram official news website reported that the security forces are preparing for issuing arrest warrants for other 300 Brotherhood members.

The move came after the military ousted President Mohamed Morsi and assigned the chief of the Supreme Constitutional Court to temporarily run the country until a new president is elected.

The security procedures are meant to prevent the Islamist leaders from urging their supporters for acts of violence against the security forces or the masses celebrating Morsi's removal.

Clashes between supporters and opponents of the ousted president killed at least 10 people and injured hundreds of others across the country.
