Muslim Brotherhood leader Gomaa Amin is in hiding in London
by Robert Mendick and Edward Malnick
The new spiritual leader of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood is living in hiding in London in fear of state-sponsored assassination, it can be disclosed.
Gomaa Amin is understood to have been made head of the Islamist organisation last week following the arrest of his predecessor in Cairo by Egypt's military rulers.
Mr Amin, 79, had flown to London about two months ago for medical treatment and as a result escaped detention when the army seized power in a bloody coup.
