Egyptian Islamist slams France for interference in Mali

Egyptian Islamist slams France for interference in Mali

One of the leaders of a Egyptian Islamist group Egyptian Islamic Jihad Muhammad al-Zawahiri has said that “by interfering in the conflict in Mali, France started a war against Islam”.

He said this in an interview to the French newspaper Journal du Dimanche.

Al-Zawahiri calls this interference of France in the Malian conflict “unlawful and unacceptable”.

Muhammad al-Zawahiri is a younger brother of Ayman al-Zawahiri, a close aide of Osama Bin Laden, who became Al Qaeda’s head after Bin Laden was killed.
