CAIRO: Egypt has arrested six people in connection with last year’s assassination of Public Prosecutor Hisham Barakat, and the prosecution ordered their detention on Sunday, a judicial source told Reuters.

Barakat was killed in a car bomb attack in Cairo in June 2015. He was the most senior state official to die at the hands of militants since the toppling of an Islamist president in 2013. There was no confirmed claim of responsibility
