(FOX NEWS) Egyptian security officials said Thursday that they have arrested the Muslim Brotherhood’s leader, after the military ousted Brotherhood-aligned President Mohammed Morsi and replaced him with the supreme justice of the Constitutional Court.

The officials said Mohammed Badie was arrested Wednesday night in a resort village in Marsa Matrouh, a Mediterranean coastal city west of Cairo not far from the Libyan border. He had been staying in a villa owned by a businessman with Brotherhood links.

The officials spoke Thursday on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the press.
