Muslim Brotherhood’s foreign media spokesman arrested
The Egyptian government is keeping up the pressure on supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi. Another top Muslim Brotherhood official has been taken into custody, according to The New York Times’ bureau chief in Cairo.
Gehad El-Haddad, foreign media spokesman for the Muslim Brotherhood arrested today, sent a skype message Sunday: "Take care of yourselves."

Our own Margaret Warner spoke to el-Haddad via Skype when she was in Egypt earlier this month, for a recent report on the Muslim Brotherhood’s future.
