Egypt: Muslim Brothers Arrested for Raid Attempt of Police Station in Minya

Minya's security arrested five men, who belong to the Muslim Brotherhood, on Friday for attempting to raid the Salloum police station and attacking forces with stones.

Supporters of deposed President Mohamed Mursi tried to raid the station after forces departed to deal with more supporters who had blocked a train station.

The attackers hurled stones and Molotov cocktails at the forces who responded with teargas.
