Last Monday night, March 16, Egyptian security raided the homes of and detained 17 MB members from Menoufiyya in a barbarous manner that scared their families.



The detainees are: Sobhy Ahmed Ja”far, Fathy Zaky El-Surwy, Tarek Ali Younis, Abdel-Halim Abul-Nur, Ashraf El-Bagoury, Mohamed Soleiman, Adel Sherif, Hamada Eisa, Sayyid Eita, Ashraf Abul-So”ud, Mohamed Saleh Hijab, El-Sayyid El-Mashayikh, Hany El-Gindy, Sobhy Abul-Makarim, Gamal Maghraby, Mohamed “Agrama, and Wahid Abdul-Qadir.
