The former chairman of the Muslim Brotherhood said Tuesday the government had banned him from traveling to Saudi Arabia for Islamic rituals. "Last year they said they won't allow me to travel, then they let me go; this year, they promised to let me travel, but then banned me. It's nonsense," Mohammed Mahdi Akef told sources.

Interior Ministry officials declined to comment. The group issued a statement describing the travel ban as "confiscation of  citizens' right to travel, move, and worship." adding that, these travel bans are not new to members of the movement.
