Kuwait arrests Egyptian over links with Muslim Brotherhood alleged terror cell

Kuwaiti authorities have arrested an Egyptian man over links with a Muslim Brotherhood terror cell busted in July.

The man, identified as Islam Abdel Rahman, is a resident of the Gulf country where he operates as a dentist. He was arrested Saturday at Kuwait International airport upon return from Turkey where he spent four months.

Abdel Rahman appeared on authorities’ radar in July after a terror cell, allegedly connected with outlawed Muslim Brotherhood, was busted in July. He fled to Turkey and only returned when he was informed that was no longer wanted.

Kuwait has reportedly deported other members of the group to Egypt under a bilateral security agreement.

President Fattah Al- Sisi’s regime in power since July 2013, following a coup against first democratically elected President Mohamed Morsi from the Muslim Brotherhood, has banned the movement that it described as worse than the Islamic State group (ISIS).

The Egyptian regime has arrested and sentenced thousands of the movement’s members including Morsi himself who died in June this year while appearing before court.

Abdel Rahman’s father, has been deported by Bahrain to Egypt. He was arrested while he was visiting the tiny Gulf country for the wedding of his daughter. The father was medical doctor in Turkey.
