Three imams banned for life over Muslim Brotherhood links


Three well-known imams in Saudi Arabia have been banned for life from delivering sermons in mosques and religious camps for their Muslim Brotherhood links.

The three imams maintained direct contact with the Muslim Brotherhood in a number of Arab countries, the Saudi Gazette reported Monday. The three imams were well-known in their regions.

Seventy-six other imams, Muslim scholars, preachers and academics were being closely watched for their alleged connection with the Muslim Brotherhood, the report said.
