Egypt's former Islamist prime minister arrested

Published: 12.25.13, 09:03 / Israel News

Egyptian police arrested ousted Islamist president Mohamed Morsi's former prime minister Tuesday as tensions rose after a major car-bomb attack on a police building killed 15 people.

 

The Interior Ministry said ex-premier Hisham Qandil, who is facing jail after being convicted of failing to respect a court ruling while in office, was arrested in the desert outside Cairo with a "smuggler attempting to escape to Sudan.” An unpopular prime minister who struggled to right a dire economy, Qandil has kept a relatively low profile since the military overthrew Morsi in July.
