CAIRO, Egypt – Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood denied its supreme guide, Mohamed Badie, has been detained, with a spokesman for the Islamist movement telling AFP he would address a rally on Friday, July 5, of supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi.

Security forces said on Thursday, July 4, Badie had been arrested by military police at the request of the prosecution for inciting the killing of protesters.

But Brotherhood spokesman Ahmed Aref said Badie would speak at a pro-Morsi demonstration at around 1630 GMT on Friday. – Rappler.com
