Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohamed Badie has been detained, according to Egyptian security sources.
The prosecutor's office ordered the arrests of Badie and up to 300 other members of the Brotherhood following the overthrow of Mursi, who was backed by the group.
According to military decree, Mursi's successor Adly Mansour will serve as interim president until elections are held.
The Muslim Brotherhood believe what thy call a military coup is a signal Egypt is turning into a police state. At a press conference their spokesman Gehad El-Haddad issued a warning to the generals.
Tens of thousands in Cairo's Tahrir Square are celebrating the ouster of President Mohhamed Morsi, who was removed from power by the military on Wednesday night following mass anti-government protests.
