Former Egyptian Interior Minister arrested

Date: Dec 5, 2017

Former Egyptian Interior, Minister Habib al-Adly, has been arrested after failing to hand himself into authorities after being sentenced to seven years in prison on corruption charges, two security sources said on Tuesday.

Adly, a former minister under Hosni Mubarak who was ousted in 2011, was due to hand himself after the case in April but had not been seen in recent months. He is due back in court for an appeal in January.

Egypt's state news agency MENA earlier reported that Adly had been located, but did not disclose his location or whether he had been arrested.
