Party drops 2 Is­lamists over sex on the beach

The Myanmar Times - - World -

Two Se­nior Moroc­can Is­lamist fig­ures have been sus­pended from their party, fol­low­ing me­dia re­ports that they were ar­rested in a “sex­ual po­si­tion” on a beach. Moulay Omar Ben­ham­mad and Fa­tima Ne­j­jar, both in their 60s and vice pres­i­dents of the Unity and Re­form Move­ment (MUR), have been “sus­pended from all struc­tures of the move­ment”, the party said on Au­gust 22. The MUR is the re­li­gious and ide­o­log­i­cal wing of the Jus­tice and Devel­op­ment Party which has led a coali­tion gov­ern­ing the con­ser­va­tive Mus­lim king­dom since late 2011.
