Egypt's Supreme State Security Prosecution ordered on Monday the detention of eight Muslim Brotherhood members for 15 days pending investigations.

The eight defendants were extradited from Kuwait two weeks ago, and are charged with joining a banned terrorist organisation that works to undermine state institutions.

The Muslim Brotherhood was officially designated as a terrorist organisation in Egypt in December 2013.
