The brother of al-Qaida chief Ayman al-Zawahri has been arrested by Egyptian authorities said a security official on Saturday. Mohammed al-Zawahri, leader of the ultraconservative Jihadi Salafist group, was detained at a security check point in Giza. Al-Zawahri allied himself with Egypt’s Islamist now ousted President Mohammed Morsi who was a leading member in the Muslim Brotherhood. An anti-military coalition led by Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood has called for a week of civil strife in the country claiming that they will not falter until the currently military-led government is overthrown.
