Egypt: 42 Muslim Brotherhood Leaders Arrested

State security forces arrested 42 Muslim Brotherhood leaders — 34 in Alexandria and 8 in the Gharbiya governorate — on Aug. 18, Brotherhood sources said, Ahram Online reported. The arrests came as part of the Egyptian military's larger crackdown on Muslim Brotherhood protests. The Brotherhood has demonstrated an ability to weather suppression in the past, but this time it is facing a different sort of crisis — one that could strip its status as Egypt's largest political movement.
