Turkish citizen detained in Egypt on charges of espionage, conspiracy

TEHRAN (FNA)- A 46-year-old Turkish citizen has been arrested in Egypt on suspicion of spying and conspiring with the Muslim Brotherhood, security sources announced.

Rasit Oguz was arrested in the city of Ismailia Northeast of Cairo back in August while taking photographs of military facilities, state news agency MENA reported.

Relations between Ankara and Cairo have been tense ever since the Egyptian military ousted President Mohamed Mursi in July.

After a crackdown on Mursi supporters in August, Turkey recalled its ambassador from Egypt.
