Egypt's former anti-graft chief taken to military prosecutor, family says
Egyptian police took a former anti-corruption chief to the military prosecutor's office on Tuesday, his family said, detaining a prominent figure who helped run the election campaign of a challenger to President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.

 

Hisham Genena's daughter Nada Genena told Reuters by phone that up to 30 policemen came to the family home in a Cairo suburb early in the day and took her father away by car.

 

His wife, Wafaa Kedieh, said he was taken to the military prosecutors. There was no word on Genena's situation and the reason for his detention was not immediately clear.

 

An Interior Ministry official said he had no knowledge of the incident.
