Suleiman Accuses Muslim Brotherhood of Death Threats

Former Egyptian vice president and intelligence chief Omar Suleiman said, Monday, that the Muslim Brotherhood had sent him death threats. Interviewed by the semi-official Al-Ahram daily, the newly-declared presidential candidate said the country's Supreme Military Council had not taken a position on his candidacy.

On Sunday, the Brotherhood said a revolt would take place if Suleiman won the election. Opponents tie him to ousted president Hosni Mubarak.
