Egypt: Mursi Advisors Sent to Jail - Security Source

Advisors of former Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi, Essam al-Haddad and Ayman Aly, were sent to al-Aqrab Prison on Saturday, a security source said.

The source told the state news agency that Haddad and Aly were transferred from an unknown location to the Tora location amid heavy security.

Egypt's army ousted Mursi in July in response to mass demonstrations across the country.
