Egypt: Police Arrest 34 Brotherhood Supporters in Alexandria

Cairo — - Police forces arrested about 34 Muslim Brotherhood supporters in Alexandria on Friday, said Major General Nasser al-Abd, head of Alexandria's police investigations.

The arrestees were found in possession of anti-Armed Forces leaflets, petrol bombs, Rabaa symbols, and a live transmission device.

Clashes broke out earlier in the Siouf area between security forces and a group of pro-Muslim Brotherhood demonstrators.

A number of Brotherhood youths staged a march after the Friday noon prayer, an Aswat Masriya eyewitness reported.

Security forces aborted a Brotherhood march in Dekheila area before the demonstrators started roaming the streets, Abd told Aswat Masriya.

On the other hand, some local residents hung a large banner opposite to al-Qaed Ibrahim Mosque to salute Alexandria's security bodies, the Middle East News Agency reported.
