Dr. Mohamed Morsy, a member of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) Executive Bureau, denied claims reported by the German newspaper, Der Spiegel, that Ayman Al-Zawahiri, Al-Qaeda"s second-in-command, has ever been a Muslim Brotherhood member.
Dr. Ayman Al-Zawahiri has never been affiliated to the Muslim Brotherhood group as an organization and ideology, said Morsy in statements to Ikhwanweb.
