CAIRO (Reuters) - Egypt's prosecutor general on Monday ordered the arrest of five prominent political activists pending questioning about violence near the Muslim Brotherhood's headquarters last week, a statement from the prosecutor's office said.

Those ordered arrested included Alaa Abd El-Fattah, a prominent blogger. The five were also banned from travel.
