Egyptian security forces detained an Islamist opposition activist on Saturday as he crossed into Egypt from the Gaza Strip.
They said they "believed" he had entered Gaza via a cross-border tunnel, security sources said.
The government suspended the activities of Magdy Ahmed Hussein, the head of the Islamist-oriented Labour party in 2000, partly on the ground that it has links with the Muslim Brotherhood, Egypt's largest opposition group.
1.5 million Gazans live under heavy Israel siege for a long time and Egypt still insists on not to opening the only Gaza border crossing in a move condemned by Muslims around the world in protests, leaving Gazans desperate to digging tunnels underground and risking their lives.
Israel killed more than 1,300 Palestinians, a third of them children in the 22-day military aggression on Gaza and wounded 5,300 Palestinians, and Gaza infrastructure suffered massive damage totaling some 476 million dollars, according to Palestinian medics and officials.
