Egyptian security forces arrested Badie, the supreme guide of the Muslim Brotherhood, on July 4, 2013 in the northern city of Marsa Matrouh following the military overthrow of Islamist President Mohamed Mursi, security sources said. The prosecutor's office ordered his arrest earlier on the same day, along with his influential deputy Khairat el-Shater.
