Two Egyptian inhabitants arrested for suspected terrorist links
font size    

The Egyptian authorities have arrested two inhabitants in Egypt's new industrial community Sadat City for suspected role in a terrorist organization, reported Egyptian news agency MENA on Wednesday.

Mounir Ahmed Mabrouk and Mohammed Fahim Tahoun at Sadat city, 90 km northwest of Cairo, were arrested Saturday and are now being questioned at the Supreme State Security Prosecution, Egyptian Assistant Minister of Interior Major General Ahmed Dia-Eddin told a meeting of Egyptian Parliament's National Security and Defense Committee.

On Monday, a senior Egyptian security official said the Egyptian authorities have caught a terrorist group which was recruiting members in Egypt and intended to send them to Iraq to launch attacks.

In recent years, a string of suicide terror attacks hit Egypt's Sinai Peninsula tourist resorts, leaving scores of people dead and injured, according to MENA.

Last week, three Islamic militants were sentenced to death after an Egyptian state security court convicted them of taking part in suicide attacks that killed 34 people in 2004 on the Sinai resort of town of Taba.
