Egypt's prosecutor corrects name of wanted Saudi

CAIRO (AP) — The Egyptian prosecutor's office has corrected the name of a prominent Saudi cleric charged along with four other members of the banned Muslim Brotherhood with money laundering and raising funds abroad.

A prosecutor's statement Monday identified the Saudi suspect as Awadh al-Qarani. Last week, the prosecutor's office incorrectly identified him as a Saudi cleric with a similar name, Aedh al-Qarani, who has denied any connection with the Brotherhood, Egypt's largest opposition group.

The statement said the wanted Awadh al-Qarani had taught at a Saudi university and is now a businessman.

On Wednesday, Prosecutor General Abdel Meguid Mahmoud ordered the five suspects to be tried by a State Security Emergency court.

Four of the suspects are at large.
