Qaradawi is the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood and close to Qatar’s ruling family
CAIRO — Egyptian security forces have arrested the daughter and son-in-law of the Muslim Brotherhood’s spiritual leader, who is in exile in Qatar.
A statement from the prosecutor says Youssef Al-Qaradawi’s daughter Ola and her husband, Hossam Khalaf, were arrested in a Mediterranean coastal resort on Sunday over allegations of membership in a terrorist organization.
On Monday, they were ordered detained for 15 days pending investigation.
Egypt branded the Brotherhood a “terrorist organization.”
Al-Qaradawi was sentenced to death in absentia. He is on a sanctions list by Egypt, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and Bahrain. — AP
