Report: UAE refuses to free detained Egyptians

DUBAI - The United Arab Emirates has rejected a request by Egypt to free 11 of its citizens held on suspicion of training Islamists in how to overthrow governments, local newspapers reported on Saturday.
Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood last week said some of the detainees were its members and demanded they be freed, saying they had been wrongfully arrested.
The UAE has long voiced distrust of the Muslim Brotherhood that helped propel Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi to power last year after the overthrow of veteran ruler Hosni Mubarak.
