UAE official says groups may appeal against inclusion on terror list
by Yara Bayoumy
Groups placed on a terrorism list by the United Arab Emirates can appeal against the designation if their "approach has changed", a senior UAE official said on Thursday, after several organisations criticized their inclusion.
The Gulf Arab state last week designated the Muslim Brotherhood and its local affiliates, as well as Syria-based Nusra Front and the Islamic State, and Shi'ite militant groups such as the Houthi movement in Yemen as terrorist organisations.
The list includes the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Muslim American Society and the Cordoba Foundation, along with a number of other Islamic research, advocacy and social organisations based in Western countries.
