Egypt's prosecution has ordered on Wednesday a 15 day detention for five men over inciting protests on 11 November and  joining a terrorist group that aims to obstruct state institutions.

According to prosecution, the five men formed a "terrorist cell" in Cairo's Al-Salam City.

In recent week, an anonymous call circulated on social media for demonstrations on 11 November to protest the government's economic policies.

Police has already arrested others over similar charges.

No political parties or social movements have backed the call.
