DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Kuwait’s Inside Ministry says it has detained members of Egypt’s outlawed Muslim Brotherhood group convicted of terrorism crimes.
The assertion printed Friday on the state-run KUNA information company didn’t say what number of people had been detained or if Kuwait deliberate on extraditing them to Egypt.
It stated members of the group had been convicted of terrorism in Egypt with some sentenced to 15 years behind bars. The Inside Ministry assertion described them as fugitives who escaped Egypt to Kuwait, the place they had been arrested and interrogated by Kuwaiti safety.
Kuwait, not like Egypt and Gulf states like Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, has not branded the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist group.
The group briefly held energy in Egypt in 2012 earlier than being ousted and swept up in a safety crackdown.
