Muslim Brotherhood top leader killed in Egyptian raid

Egypt’s Interior Ministry said it killed a senior Muslim Brotherhood leader who was responsible for the group’s “armed wing”, and another member of the Islamist organization. The ministry said it raided an apartment in Cairo’s Bassateen neighborhood after learning it was used by the leaders as a headquarters.

The Muslim Brotherhood identified the man killed as 61-year-old Mohamed Kamal, a member of the group’s top leaders, who was perceived as one of the most prominent leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood around the world and a member of the organization’s Guidance Bureau, which organizes various activities of the Islamist organization around the world.
