The General Prosecution has ordered the 15-day detention of the Muslim Brotherhood’s former Minister of  Manpower, Khaled El-Azhary, pending investigations. 
 
Al-Azhary has been accused of inciting violence leading to the killing of opponents of ousted President Mohamed Morsi in Cairo’s Bein El-Sarayat district. 
 
Al-Azhary was arrested on Thursday along with senior Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohamed El-Beltagy in Giza. 
 
Security forces have staged a recent crackdown on prominent Brotherhood members and leaders since the dispersal of two main pro-Morsi sit-ins in Cairo on 14 August.
