Egypt places Zumar, Islambouli on terror list, along with 162 others


Cairo Criminal Court decided Sunday to place 164 persons on the terror list, including Mohammed al-Islambouli, Tarek al-Zumar and Assem Abdul Majed.

In June, 2017, the political arm of al-Jamaa al-Islamiyya, accepted the resignation of its chairman Zumar. Moreover, it accepted the resignation of Islambouli. The Al-Jamaa al-Islamiyya has been designated as a terrorist group by the US, the UK, and the European Union.

Earlier in the same month, Zumar was placed on terror list, along with other 58 individuals besides 12 organizations. People and organizations named on the list were believed to have relations with Qatar, according to a joint by the four countries boycotting Qatar for supporting terrorism, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, and Bahrain.

Zumar who is believed to be living currently in Qatar was imprisoned in 1984, as he was accused, along with his cousin Abboud al-Zumar of assassinating former Egyptian President Mohamed Anwar al-Sadat.
