Security forces arrested Osama Mursi, the son of ousted Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi, at his home on Thursday.

Mursi has been named as one of 739 defendants in the Rabaa sit-in dispersal case, which dates back to August 2013 and includes other senior Brotherhood members.

The prosecution charged the defendants with “unauthorized assembly, the use of force, premeditated murder, and the possession of weapons and explosives” during the violent sit-in protest for the over throwing of former president Mursi.

A source to the Arabic site of Al Arabiya News Channel said charges against him include, incitement against the state and the army, advocating organizations to commit acts of violence and riots after the overthrow of the Muslim Brotherhood.
