They were among about 100 members of the Muslim Brotherhood taken into custody Tuesday.

The brotherhood -- locked in a deadly battle with the military for control of Egypt -- slammed the interim government's ongoing "bloody military coup."

Badie was taken in a dawn raid at a residential apartment in Cairo's Nasr City neighborhood, the Ministry of Interior said.

Badie will be detained for 15 days for investigation on accusations of inciting violence and killing protesters, Egypt's Ministry of Interior said. The detention could be extended, as has been done with ousted President Mohamed Morsy.

Mahmoud Ezzat, Badie's deputy, was named supreme guide on a temporary basis.

Later, Hegazy was arrested in Nasr City as well, according to state-run broadcaster Al-Masriya.
