Egypt’s state prosecutor has issued an arrest warrant for the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, Mohamed Badie, and a number of other senior figures.
Mr Badie is accused of inciting the violence in Cairo on Monday in which more than 50 people were killed.
Many Brotherhood members are already in detention and warrants are said to have been been issued for hundreds more.
Meanwhile, a foreign ministry spokesman has said ousted President Mohammed Morsi is being held in a “safe place”.
Badr Abdul Atti told reporters he did not know where Mr Morsi was, but that he was being treated in a “very dignified manner”.
