The private bodyguard of the Muslim Brotherhood's Supreme Guide Mohamed Badie was arrested on Monday, reported Al-Ahram’s Arabic news website.
Ahmed Attia, known as Ahmed El-Sheemy, was arrested in Giza's Awsim district and is accused of protesting and inciting violence according to a security source.
Badie was arrested in August 2013 following the ouster of his fellow Brotherhood member, Mohamed Morsi from the presidency.
Badie faces a number of charges including inciting murder. He has received the death sentence in several cases but all have been appealed.
Security forces have launched a crackdown on Brotherhood members and loyalists following the ouster of Morsi, leaving hundreds killed in clashes and thousands injured.
