Military Issues Arrest Orders
By Harold Hutchison
The Egyptian military has issued arrest orders for high-ranking members of the Muslim Brotherhood, including the group’s leader, Mohamed Badie. Badie is accused of inciting the violent confrontations between the group and the Egyptian military that left 50 dead.
The Muslim Brotherhood ran the country in the wake of Hosni Mubarak’s removal from office in 2011. Since then, the country had been in chaos. Violence continued in Egypt, with two people being killed in an RPG attack, while a military base in the Sinai Peninsula was attacked by a mortar.
Mohammed Morsi, who took power in 2012, is currently being held by the Egyptian military.
