Egypt Notifies Arab League of Brotherhood's Terrorist Label

Egypt has asked the Arab league to notify its member-states of its decision that designated the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist group, said a Foreign Affairs Ministry statement.

This step comes in application of an article that stipulates the notification of Arab states that are part of the Arab anti-terrorism agreement (1998) and the Arab anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism financing convention (2013).

The anti-terrorism agreement obliges the signatory states to ban persons or groups that are on terrorist lists from residing in them or being welcomed on their lands. They are also not to support, train and fund or offer them any facilities.
