The youngest son of ousted President Mohamed Morsy has been detained by police on suspicion of drug possession, Egypt’s state news agency reported.

The MENA news agency said police detained son Abdullah Morsy, a university freshman, on Saturday after a police patrol found a suspicious car parked on the side of the road in el-Obour city, east of Cairo. The agency said officers found two rolled hashish cigarettes in the car.

A security official said the car’s passengers were Morsy’s youngest son and a friend. He said prosecutors are questioning the two men.
