CAIRO - A number of leaders of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood were arrested on Wednesday, an official said, after security forces began clearing a camp of Cairo protesters who were demanding the reinstatement of deposed President Mohamed Morsi.

"We have arrested a number of Brotherhood leaders but it's too early to announce their names," General Abdel Fattah Othman, a senior official in the Interior Ministry, told the privately-owned CBC TV channel.
