Cairo — Police forces have arrested 147 supporters of the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood organisation in eight cities, an Interior Ministry statement said on Friday.
The arrestees, which include 28 women, were found in possession of petrol bombs and leaflets promoting the terrorist group's ideologies, the statement said.
They also cut off roads and assaulted policemen and citizens, which caused a number of injuries among policemen.
Egypt labelled the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organisation last Wednesday and accused it of standing behind the attack on the Mansoura police station in Daqahliya.
Two people were killed in clashes that broke out in Minya and New Damietta on Friday between police forces and pro-Brotherhood protesters.
