(CNN) -- Egyptian security forces arrested a senior Muslim Brotherhood leader on suspicion of inciting violence after last month's ouster of then-President Mohamed Morsy, state-run media reported Thursday.
Mohamed El-Beltagi was arrested in Giza province, state-run newspaper Al-Ahram reported.
The Egyptian military and other security forces have arrested a number of Muslim Brotherhood leaders since the ouster of Morsy, who belonged to the brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party. In many cases, those arrested have been accused of inciting violence.
What is the Muslim Brotherhood?
Protesters and Egyptian riot police clash in Cairo on January 17, as the country awaits the results of a constitutional referendum. On January 18, the electoral commission announced the constitution had overwhelmingly been approved.

Egypt has been in turmoil since the military ousted Morsy in early July. The military and Morsy opponents have battled Muslim Brotherhood members and other Morsy supporters.
This month, hundreds of people -- citizens as well as members of security forces -- were killed. Many of the deaths occurred when the military used force to clear two pro-Morsy sit-in sites in Cairo, and when violence raged after pro-Morsy supporters staged demonstrations two days later.
El-Beltagi's 17-year-old daughter, Asmaa, died in violence related to the sit-in crackdowns, Al-Ahram reported.
