Egypt police clash with opposition, injure 10

A leading member of Egypt's opposition Muslim Brotherhood says 10 members of the group were injured in clashes with police during an election procession north of Cairo.
Abdel Galil el-Sharnoubi, who runs the Brotherhood's website said baton-wielding police on Saturday beat the supporters of the group's candidate Mohammed Fayyadh and arrested four others in the Nile Delta province of Sharqiya.
El-Sharnoubi said during the past 48 hours, police have arrested about 300 Brotherhood members and sympathizers in Alexandria and Sharqiya province as part of the heavy security crackdown to prevent it from contesting the Nov. 28 election.
Candidates of the banned group run as independents and make up the largest opposition bloc in parliament with 88 seats.
