Egyptian security forces have arrested a leading member of the opposition Muslim Brotherhood and three others in pre-dawn raids on Sunday, the group said on its website.

 

Abdel Moneim Abul Futuh, a member of the Islamist group"s politburo, Fathi Lashin, a former judge, Gamal Abdel Salam of the Arab doctors union, and teacher Abdel Rahman al-Gamal, were detained.

 

"The arrests are part of the regime"s attempt to cut the Brotherhood off from Egyptian political life," the group"s number two Mohammed Habib said on the website.

 

He said more than 140 members had been arrested in recent weeks.

 

The Brotherhood, Egypt"s main opposition movement, is officially banned but members operate openly in the name of the group despite frequent government crackdowns.

 

It fielded candidates running as "independents" in the 2005 election, clinching one fifth of the seats in parliament, which is controlled by President Hosni Mubarak"s ruling National Democratic Party.

 

Egypt"s next legislative election is scheduled for 2010.
