Alleged Muslim Brotherhood terror cell busted in Kuwait

KUWAIT: Eight Egyptian nationals have been arrested in Kuwait, accused of joining a terrorist cell and plotting attacks in Egypt, Kuwait’s Ministry of Interior announced today. Kuwait security forces arrested the men and expected to be extradited to Egypt.

The interior Ministry identified the terrorist cell as belonging to the Muslim Brotherhood, a powerful political Islamist organization based in Egypt but with branches throughout the region. The cell, whose members were sentenced to serve up to 15 years in jail in Egypt on terrorism charges, have been hiding in Kuwait, according to investigations of Kuwaiti detectives who followed leads that lead them to locate its members and arrest them in different locations.

The suspects confessed during investigation to carrying out terror operations in Egypt, the interior ministry said, adding that investigations are still ongoing in search for accomplices who helped provide them shelter or cooperated with them.
