Mohamed Kamal, a senior leader within the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood has been killed in a gun battle, the country’s Interior Ministry claimed.

In a statement issued early this morning, the ministry said that its forces killed Kamal in a shootout the previous day. The ministry has said sad that Kamal was responsible for the Brotherhoods ‘armed wing’ though the organisation itself maintains that it operates in exclusively peaceful terms.

Kamal was under an arrest warrant having been sentenced to two terms of life imprisonment, according to the ministry.
