The most senior leader in Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood, Mohammed Badie, has been arrested in Cairo.

Badie, who was wanted over alleged incitement to violence and murder, has been temporarily replaced as general guide by his deputy.

In another development, Egypt's ex vice-president Mohamed ElBaradei is to face trial on charges of breaching national trust after resigning last week.

Almost 900 people have been killed in the country since last Wednesday.

Egypt is under a state of emergency as the military-backed interim leaders crack down on Islamists opposed to the army's ousting of Mohammed Morsi.
