Egyptian police have arrested one of the leaders of the country's main pro-democracy group. Group officials and police say George Ishaq, the director-general of Kifaya, was arrested Wednesday night at his home in Cairo. Kifaya, which in Arabic means "Enough," is a broad-based movement that has spearheaded demonstrations against the government of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak since late 2004.
