The spokesman for the Prosecutor-General office Mostafa Dweidar said on Monday that the prosecutor-general Talaat Abdullah has ordered an investigation into Sheikh Mahmoud Shaaban's highly controversial fatwa against Egypt's opposition figures.

Last week,  the Al-Azhar University professor and host of a religious television show on the ultraconservative TV channel El-Hafez, Shaaban stated that the opposition should be punished by death for attempting to bring down a leader elected by the public, directly naming Hamdeen Sabbahi and fellow National Salvation Front leader Mohamed ElBaradei.
