CAIRO – 23 May 2020: Sudanese Public Prosecutor Mawlana Taj al-Ser al-Hebr announced Friday that interrogations with local and Egyptian members of a terror cell affiliated to the Muslim Brotherhood had started.

The Sudanese police had arrested the elements last week in the Eastern Nile District and found at their acquisition various types of arms and documents of explosions they planned to carry out in Khartoum and Cairo.

Sudanese authorities revealed that one of the elements had confessed that the cell was operating upon the orders of the International Muslim Brotherhood Order with the aim of destabilizing both countries.

The element is an Egyptian national who entered Sudanese authorities by a fake Syrian passport. He is specialized in manufacturing explosives and was brought to Sudan with two others.

The Muslim Brotherhood is banned in Egypt, and many of its members are on terror lists.
