Security forces have carried out sweeps of arrests against supporters of Muslim Brotherhood candidates for the Shura Council midterm elections. The sweeps included three more governorates, Dakahlia, Kafr Al-Sheikh and Beni Suweif.
 
Dakahlia
Security forces in Mit Ghamr, Dakahlia arrested Mostafa Al Aedi and Mohamed Ahmed Al Sayed from village of Kafr Al-Miqdam on Tuesday evening.
 
Another police force in district of Belqas raided houses of eng. Abdul Aziz Ahmed, an agronomist in Beqas agricultural administration, sheikh Kamal Abdul Baqi, imam and preacher in the Ministry of Endowments, and sheikh Al-Sayyed Abdullah, imam and preacher in the Ministry of Endowments. As usual, the police searched and disheveled the contents of their houses in addition to intimidating women and children.
 
What raises eyebrows is that sheikh Sayyed Abdullah has been working in State of Kuwait since 2006, to show the state of random detentions against the Muslim Brotherhood members and prove that the detentions are due to groundless claims because the police is raiding the house of an imam who is outside the country during the past year.
 
Two other Muslim Brotherhood members from the district of Shirbin have been released after they were detained on Monday:
Al Shrbini Roshdi Ali Hassan, teacher of Quran
Mohamed Mahmoud Abdul Khalek Al-Adib, primary school teacher, from the village of Sawaqi Al-Arabs, district of Shirbin.
 
The state security forces are still removing all means of election campaigning related to Muslim Brotherhood candidates. In district of Belqas, a village guard called Mohamed Hassan Youssef from the village of Al-Jawadiya removed on Tuesday May, 29, 2007, all posters hanged on outer walls of houses in the village. He removed only the ones related to Muslim Brotherhood candidate for the constituency of Talkha, Abdul Mohsen Fmhawa.
 
" I am ordered to remove these posters" said the village guard when residents asked him why he does so.
 
In the village of Basandila, district of Belqas, persons working in the local council removed other graffitis supporting the MB candidate through painting the wall with white lime.
 
Kafr Al-Sheikh
The security forces arrested on Wednesday at dawn May, 30, 2007 Mohamed Kamel Sharaf, a Muslim Brotherhood figure and writer in Al-Karama newspaper. These detentions are a part of the fierce crackdown launched by the Interior Ministry against Islamic citizens specially in constituencies in which MB figures declared and lodged their election bids. The security forces raided Sharaf"s house inn Baltym, Kafr Al-Sheikh, destroyed the house gate, disheveled furniture, stole a PC and a laptop, searched rooms of the children, intimidated the detainee"s girls. These bizarre actions stirred feelings of the citizens who insulted and said bad names about the Egyptian regime while security trucks were leaving the scene after detaining Sharaf in such an inhumane manner.
 
Kidnappings in Beni Suweif
In Beni Suweif, the security services kidnapped five supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood candidate, Gaber Mansour. The detainees included the office manager of MP Dr. Hamdi Zahran. More than twenty persons ambushed Mohamed Mahmoud Abdul Aziz, the office manager of Dr. Zahran, while he was heading for home after finishing work at the evening shift of the office. The 20 persons assaulted him brutally and kidnapped him in a car and took him to an undisclosed area. The detainee works in the Youth and Sport Department and is a Muslim Brotherhood iconic figure in the Beni Suweif.
 
In the same time, eng. Mostafa Al Deary and Tarek Abdul Latif Abdullah were arrested from the street in two separate incidents. They appeared before the public prosecution on Wednesday morning and it ordered them released. However, the Interior Ministry did not implement the prosecution decision. Also, Sherif Abdul Hamid and Alaa Gaber were arrested in front of their workplace, raising to 17 the number of detainees in the governorate, including three who were moved to Wadi Al-Natrun prison
