164 people, including Islamic Group figures, added to terror list

CAIRO - 12 November 2018: A total of 164 people have been added to Egypt’s terrorist list by Cairo criminal court, according to the Official Gazette on Sunday.

The list includes high-profile Islamists Tarik al-Zomor, Assem Abdel Maged and Mohamed Shawki al-Islambolli.

They are mainly charged with attempting to revive the Islamic Group, a dangerous terrorist organization that was most active from the 1970s until the 1990s at the hands of the cited men and others.

They are also charged with arming young men in Upper Egypt, once the stronghold of the Islamic Group, inciting violence against the state, and establishing relations with foreign elements.

Names added to the terror list are revised every five years.
