Egyptian authorities detained suspected "Black Bloc" members as they protested an order by the public prosecutor to arrest anyone from the shadowy opposition group.

Presenting themselves as the defenders of protesters opposed to President Mohamed Morsi's rule, the Black Bloc reportedly models itself on anarchist groups of the same name in Europe and the United States.
