Egyptian police arrested 40 university students and their professors at a beach resort on charges of belonging to the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood, a security official said Saturday. The students and teachers were accused of holding meetings aimed at reviving the banned Islamist organization, which is Egypt's main opposition group, the official said on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the press. A spokesman for the Brotherhood said that the students were at the Balteem resort on the Mediterranean coast, east of Alexandria. Saturday's arrests bring the number of Brotherhood members detained to at least 600, said Abdel Galil el-Sharnoubi.
