Cairo - An Egyptian rights group says security forces have confiscated a publication it puts out periodically, accusing it of seeking to overthrow the government.
The head of the Arab Network for Human Rights Information, Gamal Eid, said on Sunday that 1 000 copies of his centre's digest, entitled Wasla, or Link, were seized at the print shop the night before, and a worker at the press was arrested.
He says security officials told lawyers that the publication was part of a plan to "overthrow the regime" and was linked to the Muslim Brotherhood, which the government declared a terrorist organisation last year. Eid called the accusations "ludicrous".
Security officials were not immediately available for comment.
