CAIRO, Aug. 21 (Xinhua) -- Egyptian authorities on Wednesday arrested hardliner Islamist preacher Safwat Hegazi and Muslim Brotherhood spokesman Morad Mohamed Ali.
Hegazy, wanted for inciting violence, was trying to flee to Libya when getting arrested, state news agency MENA quoted a high ranking security source as saying.
Ali, the media advisor of the Freedom and Justice Party, the political wing of the Brotherhood, was arrested at Cairo International Airport before boarding a plane to Rome.
On Monday, Muslim Brotherhood top leader Mohamed Badie was arrested. The Egyptian prosecution on Tuesday ordered 15 days of detention for him over charges of killing protesters.
