Cairo, August 20: The spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, General Guide Mohammed Badie, has been arrested in Cairo according to Egypt authorities.

Reports said he was detained at a residential flat in Nasr City.

A state of emergency is in force in Egypt amid turmoil following a crackdown on Islamists in which hundreds have died.
