Reuters reports on the arrest of 25 alleged Jihad activists in Cairo. To my knowledge there has been no arrests (or indeed operations) by Egyptian Islamic Jihad in a long time. If it is true, it's a worrying sign that long-dormant Jihad (which has not done much since its erstwhile leader, Ayman Al Zawahri, joined Al Qaeda) may be reviving.
