Reuters and AP reported that an order for his arrest went out six days ago, but he wasn’t arrested. This AFP article refers to the previous arrest order obliquely in saying that “Badie and other leaders are already wanted for allegedly inciting violence in previous clashes in Cairo.” If he is arrested now, there will be still more deadly violence. “Egypt orders arrest of Muslim Brotherhood chief over deadly clashes,” from Agence France-Presse, July 10 (thanks to Twostellas):
Cairo: Egypt’s public prosecutor on Wednesday ordered the arrest of Muslim Brotherhood supreme guide Mohammed Badie and other top leaders of the movement for allegedly inciting violence that left dozens dead, judicial sources said.
At least 51 people were killed in clashes Monday outside the Republican Guard headquarters in Cairo where supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi were calling for him to be reinstated.
Among those wanted by the prosecution are leading Brotherhood members Mohammed al-Beltagui, Mahmud Ezzat and Safwat Hegazi, the sources said.
Badie and other leaders are already wanted for allegedly inciting violence in previous clashes in Cairo.
