Cairo: Egypt`s military forces have arrested Muslim Brotherhood`s top leader Mohamed Badie, a day after ousting Brotherhood-affiliated president Mohamed Morsi, Xinhua reported.

Acting prosecutor general Ahmed Ezz el-Din on Thursday ordered the arrest warrant for the Muslim Brotherhood`s leader on charges of inciting the killing of anti-Morsi protesters.

The warrant also includes Badei`s deputy, Kirate El-Shater.

Investigations revealed that the two accused hired goons to kill opponents of the ousted president outside the Muslim Brotherhood`s headquarters in Cairo`s Muqattam district, a prosecution report said.

Egyptian security also arrested Mohamed Saad al- katatni, leader of the Muslim Brotherhood`s Freedom and Justice Party, and Rashad al-Bayoumi, deputy general guide of the group.
