Report: Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood cell detained in UAE

ABU DHABI - The United Arab Emirates has arrested an "Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood cell" that trained local Islamists in how to overthrow Arab governments, a Sharjah-based newspaper reported on Tuesday, citing an unnamed source familiar with the investigation.
The oil-rich Gulf state - of which Sharjah is one part - has previously voiced strong distrust of the Islamist political movement which after long years of being banned took power in free elections in Egypt last year.
The cell, of "more than 10 people", had a defined organizational structure and was recruiting Egyptians in the UAE to join, al-Khaleej newspaper reported.
