Egyptian police have arrested 25 more members of the Muslim Brotherhood, the country's largest opposition movement. The state news agency reported Tuesday that the men were arrested in Beheira province north of Cairo for belonging to a banned organization and distributing its materials. Police arrested the men while they were holding an organizational meeting in the provincial capital of Damanhour. They will be held for 15 days pending an investigation. The arrests were the latest chapter in the government's long-running crackdown on the group.
