Egypt court orders release of brother of al-Qaeda leader


A court in Cairo has ordered the release of the brother of al-Qaeda leader, Mohammed Al-Zawahri,after he spent more than two years in prison without trial over accusations he led a terrorist group.

Mohammed Al-Zawahri, the brother of al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahri, will be placed under house arrest.

Al-Zawahri was arrested in August 2013, days after security forces stormed a sit-in by supporters of ousted Islamist President Mohammed Morsi, killing hundreds.

Al-Zawahri was the leader of a jihadi Salafi group and was a close ally of Morsi.
