Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Mohamed Badie is at the pro-Morsi sit-in at Rabaa Al-Adawiya Mosque, the group's Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) said on Friday afternoon.
The group's lawyer Mustafa El-Demeiry earlier denied a report by AP that Badie had been arrested in Marsa Matrouh near the Libyan border.
El-Demeiry told Ahram Online that Badie had heard there was a warrant out for his arrest and he was ready to give himself up to an appropriate authority.
Three Brotherhood leaders have been sent to Tora Prison – FJP chairman Saad El-Katatni, former Brotherhood supreme guide Mahdi Akef, and the group's lawyer Abdel-Moneim Abdel-Maqsoud, who was arrested on Friday morning after going to the prison to defend the two leaders.
