Al-Nour
  • FILE - In this Monday, Feb. 27, 2012 file photo, Egyptian lawmaker Anwar al-Balkimy, center, gestures during a session of parliament in Cairo, Egypt. Internal divisions are threatening to unravel Egypt’s second biggest political party, the political arm of the ultraconservative Salafis, the country’s most hardline Islamist movement. Now its leaders are split over whether Muslim clerics or more pragmatic politicians should be steering the movement.

    A committee will rule Sunday on the legitimate leader of the Salafist Al-Nour Party. It could also suspend the party over internal fighting.
