Egyptian police hold 1,610 Islamists - Brotherhood
 

Egyptian police have detained 1,610 members of the Muslim Brotherhood in the two days before the last stage of voting in parliamentary elections, a Brotherhood spokesman said on Wednesday.

Most of the detentions were in provinces which will vote on Thursday, said spokesman Mohamed Osama. A statement on the arrest of 71 leaders in Dakahlia province said the aim was to thwart the Brotherhood’s election campaign.

An Interior Ministry spokesman said he had no information on the detentions.
