Egypt's General Prosecution requests Interpol arrests Deputy Supreme Guide of the Muslim Brotherhood for charges of inciting violence

Egypt's General Prosecution has requested that Interpol arrest Mahmoud Ezzat, the Muslim Brotherhood's Deputy Supreme Guide, who left Egypt weeks ago.

A judicial source at the International Cooperation Office said Interpol would arrest Ezzat pursuant to an order from the prosecutor-general for charges of inciting violence.

Many of the Muslim Brotherhood's prominent figures have been arrested in Egypt since the ouster of former president Mohamed Morsi, who hails from the Islamist group, on 3 July.
