Egyptian airport authorities have arrested an Egyptian-born American on charges of taking part in violence against the state, security sources said on Thursday.

The man, identified as 47-year-old Khaled Mahmoud Migahid, is accused of burning police stations, said the security sources. His name was on a list of people prohibited from leaving the country.

Hundreds of Brotherhood members have been killed by security forces and thousands have been arrested. The state has declared the Brotherhood a terrorist organisation.

The campaign against the group has raised concerns among human rights groups and Egypt's Western allies, including the United States.
