Egypt’s hardline Islamist to resign as Luxor governor


Egyptian hardline Islamist group al-Gamaa al-Islamiya said on Saturday that its member Adel el-Khayat will resign from his post as governor of the ancient touristic city of Luxor following violent protests over his appointment.

Safwat Abdel-Ghani, the head of the political bureau of al-Gama’a al-Islamiyya’s Construction and Development Party, told Egypt’s al-Mehwar TV that there are “objective reasons” behind the popular rejection of el-Khayat.
