Egypt deports one of two Germans for link to Daesh group in Sinai

Authorities deported Egyptian-born German Mahmoud Abdel Aziz over suspected links to Daesh and plans to join an offshoot group, state news agency MENA reported, according to Ahram Online. A second German national, Issa El Sabagh, was also arrested last week at Luxor International airport over the same charges and is expected to be deported as well. His father has denied his intentions to join the group. The two men were believed to have been missing since December. Xinhua, Al Arabiya and Turkey’s Anadolu Agency also had the story.
