Muslim Brotherhood Arrested

Two days ago Gaddafi released Muslim Brotherhood activists link. And Egyptian security forces arrested today seven members of this banned group.

Abdul Munem Mahmoud, the Muslim Brotherhood official, said seven members of the group, all university organizers, were arrested during a raid on their Cairo apartment.

"Security men broke into the apartment and arrested the young men and took them to an unknown destination," Mahmoud said. "They were only arranging a protest against the offensive cartoons of our great prophet."

A police official confirmed the arrest.

"The men attached to the Brotherhood were having a meeting in their place, which is banned by the government," said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.

Muslim Brotherhood has 20% opposition seats in egyptian parliament after last elections.

Bad Libya is releasing them and good Egypt is arresting them. Strange world.
