Sudanese Fingered

CAIRO () -- President Hosni Mubarak said Thursday the mastermind of the attempt on his life was a Sudanese. He ordered 70 Sudanese evicted from a disputed border area and threatened further, unspecified actions against Sudan.


Mubarak said the mastermind of the plot has been identified as Mohammed Seraj of Sudan. Seraj was shot during a gun battle after the attack, escaped, but was later arrested, Mubarak said, without citing sources for any of his information.


Egypt has long accused Sudan of training Moslem radicals bent on toppling Mubarak's secular government and installing strict Islamic rule.
