    Thirteen members of the Muslim Brotherhood have been detained in Egypt for allegedly planning acts of terror on the Suez Canal.

    A terrorist cell, including a Suez Canal employee, planted bombs in various areas around the canal, according to security sources.

    In a recent series of police operations at least 91 members of the Brotherhood were detained and 9 killed.

    The August 6th opening of a new part of the Suez Canal is also under threat of attacks by Islamic State which actively operates in Egypt on the Sinai Peninsula.
