Suspected Islamic terrorist among newly appointed governors in Egypt

Catholic World News - June 18, 2013

Among the 17 provincial governors appointed by Egypt’s President Mohamed Morsi on June 16, at least 7 are affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood, and one is affiliated with a suspected Islamic terrorist group.

The appointments by Morsi show that the Egyptian president is feeling pressure from Islamic groups, notes the AsiaNewes service. The appointment of Adel Asaad el Khayat as governor of Luxor is particularly troubling, because he has been a leader of a group implicated in the killing of 58 foreign tourists and because Islamic militants have threatened to destroy the ancient temples that have drawn thousands of tourists to Luxor for decades.
