CAIRO, Egypt (AP) – An Egyptian security official says two leaders of the opposition Muslim Brotherhood, two Sinai Bedouins and a Palestinian have been officially charged with plotting a terrorist attack in cooperation with Hamas.

The official says that the State Security Prosecutor on Sunday charged Abdel-Hai al-Faramawy and Mohammed Wahdan of the Brotherhood with paying the equivalent of US$3,600 to two Bedouins to buy 30 large containers of fuel, spare parts and a remote control for an unmanned aircraft.

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to speak to the media, said it was not clear how the aircraft would be used in the attack or what the target would be.

The Palestinian, reportedly a member of Hamas, was to collect the purchases from the Bedouin.
