EGYPT ARRESTS U.S. EMBASSY EMPLOYEE WHO WAS IN CONTACT WITH MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD

 
CAIRO: National Security arrested a local employee on Jan. 25 who works for the U.S. embassy in Cairo, the embassy confirmed Tuesday.
 
“We confirm that one of our local employees was arrested on Jan. 25. According to our information, there are no charges against him so far,” said Mofid al-Deek, Media Attach√© and the spokesperson of the U.S. embassy in Cairo.
 
Deek said the embassy is communicating with the Egyptian government to understand the reason for the employee’s detention.
 
A security source reported National Security arrested Ahmed A., a U.S embassy employee in charge of the political Islam file. The source added that the employee was in constant contact with Khairat el-Shater, First Deputy of the General Guide of the Muslim Brotherhood, when the group ruled the country.
 
The suspect was arrested while participating with others in marches and riots in Giza Governorate. He is being investigated by the National Security Agency to determine the dimensions of his activity.
 
 
The current U.S. administration has been supportive of the Muslim Brotherhood for years.  This support is now seen as threatening by the Egyptian government, that is trying to clamp down on the Brotherhood and other islamist groups. 

Egypt is now rebuilding ties with Russia, while distancing itself from the US govt.
By the way, the previous U.S. administration of G.W. Bush was very supportive of the Saudi government.
