War & Conflict Breaking News: Egypt: Head of Muslim Brotherhood and Deputy Chief Arrested

by Wochit 0:56 mins

Hours after military action ousted President Muhammed Morsi, Saad el-Katatni, the head of the Muslim Brotherhood political party and Rashad Bayoum, the Brotherhood's deputy chief have been arrested. The two were wanted, along with Morsi in connection with an escape of 30 Brotherhood members from prison during the 2011 uprising against autocrat Hosni Mubarak. American officials said the Obama administration has been told by Egyptian military leaders that they are not interested in long-term rule following their toppling of President Mohammed Morsi. A government of civilian technocrats has been appointed to temporarily run the country in an apparent bid to forestall potential U.S. sanctions. The head of Egypt's armed forces issued a declaration suspending the constitution and appointing the head of the constitutional court as interim head of state.
