A statement by a Muslim Brotherhood-led coalition said on Tuesday that security forces arrested three leaders of Islamist political parties.

The National Alliance to Support Legitimacy (NASL) said security forces have arrested Nasr Abdel-Salam, acting head of the Building and Development Party, Magdy Hussein, head of the Istiqlal Party and Hossam Khalaf of the Wasat Party.

The statement added that security forces also raided the homes of youth leaders, such as Diaa El-Sawi, spokesman of the Youth against the Coup movement.

Security sources are yet to confirm the claims made by the Brotherhood's statement.
