Egyptian authorities Sunday arrested nine leading members of the banned Muslim Brotherhood, bringing to more than 650 the number of the group jailed since police began rounding them up three months ago. The nine men, senior Brotherhood figures from five provinces, were arrested in Cairo during a meeting at a research center, the group's web site, lawyer and police said. "They are from the political section of Brotherhood," the group's attorney, Abdel Moneim Abdel Maqsoud, told the Associated Press.
