Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim said that the security bodies managed over the past period to arrest as many as 15 terrorist cells, including 94 terrorists, over charges of committing terrorist acts, explosions, killing policemen and army troops in a number of governorates.
In an interview with MENA on the sidelines of the 31st Arab Interior Ministers' Council, Ibrahim said that the security bodies made great strides toward achieving security and stability, after a spate of violent acts which were carried out by the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood (MB) group.
The Interior Ministry stands fully ready to secure the upcoming presidential and parliamentary elections, the voters and the polling stations, the Minister affirmed.
Ibrahim warned that the ministry will stand up to any attempts to derail the electoral process with an iron fist.
The citizens will observe a tangible improvement in the security performance within the upcoming period, said the minister.
Security campaigns will be intensified throughout Egypt's governorates to get rid of criminal hotbeds, Minister Ibrahim stressed.
