Egyptian police arrested a leading secular activist wanted for trial in a raid on the office of a rights group in Cairo, the NGO said Thursday.
Police had arrested six people at the office during a raid Wednesday night, but released all except activist Mohamed Adel hours later, the Egyptian Centre for Economic and Social Rights said.
It had earlier said five people were arrested.
Adel, a prominent secular activist, is on trial with two other activists for violating a new protest law that restricts demonstrations.
