Azerbaijan, Baku, July 10 / Trend A. Taghiyeva /
Egypt's Prosecutor General's Office has issued a decree to arrest the Muslim Brotherhood leaders, Al Jazeera TV channel said on Wednesday.
Among the detained are Muslim Brotherhood leader Muhammad Badie and head of the Muslim Brotherhood Politburo Issam Aryan.
Besides them, nine more members of the movement were detained.
Last Wednesday, the Egyptian military suspended the Constitution, ousted the President Mohamed Morsi, who was facing unprecedented protests and promised to hold early elections for a new president. Egyptian Islamists do not recognise these changes and demand that Morsi, who was legally elected, be allowed to return to power.
