Younis Qandil

The Jordanian security authorities announced Saturday that they managed to find writer Younis Qandil hours after he disappeared, with claims that the Muslim Brotherhood was behind his abduction.


After searching for Younis Qandil in Amman's Tareq area, he was found injured and taken to a hospital for treatment, the spokesman for the Public Security Directorate said, adding that the investigation is ongoing.


On Saturday, Jordanian media had reported the disappearance of Younis Qandil, the secretary-general of the Believers Without Borders Center for Research.


Qandil's brother Adel accused members of the Muslim Brotherhood of being behind Qandil's abduction, saying that Qandil had filed a security complaint last week after receiving death threats.
