"Most wanted jihadist" returned to Egypt


2019.05.29 03:19

 One of Egypts most wanted jihadists has arrived back in the country after being handed over by the Libyan military strongman, Khalifa Haftar.

 
Hisham al-Ashmawy, a former Egyptian special forces officer, was detained in Libya late last year.
 
He is wanted in connection with several attacks. These include a deadly ambush of police in Egypts Western desert two years ago and a raid on guards along the border with Libya in 2014.
 
Egyptian courts had sentenced him, in his absence, to death.
 
Hisham al-Ashmawy was transferred following a visit by Egypts intelligence chief to Gen Haftar.
