Egypt’s military is moving in on ousted President Mohammed Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood.

Authorities are arresting senior figures of the party, and Morsi has been flown from a seaside villa to detention in the capital Cairo.

The Brotherhood says it will not work with the new leadership of interim President Adly Mansour, and the party has called for a wave of protests today, calling it the “Friday of Rage” or “Friday of Rejection.”
