Egyptian military police on Thursday arrested Muslim Brotherhood supreme guide Mohammed Badie, a security official told AFP, as authorities rounded up members of the influential group from which ousted president Mohamed Morsi hails.

Badie "was arrested in (the western city of) Marsa Matrouh at the request of the prosecution for inciting the killing of protesters," the official said.
