Crackdown Continues in Monoufiya

Crackdown Continues in Monoufiya

State Security agents, supported by police elements, arbitrarily executed dawn raids on the houses of two Muslim Brotherhood members in Monoufiya Governorate, northern Cairo.
The arrested MBs are:
1. Dhia” Ibrahim Eliwa: accountant in a computer hardware company.
2. Tamer Hamid Shousha: English schoolteacher.
The MB members were led to the Monoufiya-based State Security headquarters, after placing everything in their houses upside down. The raid comes after a severe cleansing raid targeted bookshops and printing offices in the same district.
In a related context, analysts consider these crackdowns as signs of pressure against the Muslim Brotherhood before the anticipated municipal elections. Note-worthy, the group did not yet decide its participation.
