TEHRAN, July 7 (Xinhua) -- Iran voiced concern over the recent arrests of a number of political figures in Egypt, the state-run IRIB TV reported on Sunday.

Egypt's elected President Mohamed Morsi was ousted on Wednesday by the Egyptian armed forces after the nationwide protests against him. Thereafter, Morsi and some leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood went under detention by the army.

In a statement issued on Sunday, Iran's Foreign Ministry warned against what it said "the Zionist regime's plots" against the Egyptians and called for "their vigilance over the plots and about the (Israeli) regime's opportunistic misuse of the recent developments" in Egypt.

The statement said the unrest has resulted in violence in the country and have harmed the national unity and domestic solidarity in Egypt, urging democratic means for settling the crisis in the Arab state, according to IRIB.

The recent protests in Egypt accused Morsi of alleged " maladministration" since he came to power a year ago. Chief of Egypt's Supreme Constitutional Court Adli Mansour has been assigned by the armed forces to run the country for a transitional period.
