Authorities have arrested 18 members of Egypt's banned Muslim Brotherhood for holding an unauthorized meeting, police and the group said Saturday. The arrests rose the number of Muslim Brotherhood members detained in recent months to at least 553. The Brotherhood posted a statement on its official Web site saying the 18 group members were arrested late Friday in the working class Matariyah neighborhood of Cairo. Police on Saturday confirmed the arrest, saying the detained men were practicing banned activities by holding a secret meeting in a small apartment of the Egyptian capital.
