Egyptian terror cell busted in Kuwait

The Ministry of Interior (MoI) announced today clamping down on a terrorist cell of the Muslim Brotherhood Organization’s Egyptian members who had been convicted of terrorism.

Members of the cells had been handed down verdicts by the Egyptian judiciary, the MoI said in a press release, indicating that some of the detainees had been sentenced to 15 years behind bars in their home country. The MoI personnel located the whereabouts of the fugitives, who had escaped from the Egyptian authorities to Kuwait, and arrested them.

During interrogations, they admitted to carrying out terrorist operations in Egypt. Investigations are proceeding to determine their accomplices, the MoI statement said, and stressed that it would crack down ruthlessly against saboteurs.
