Obama 'in $8bn secret deal with Brotherhood'...

CAIRO: The US Congress is reportedly asking President Barack Obama to recover $8 billion he allegedly paid to Muslim Brotherhood leader Khairat El Shater in exchange for 40 per cent of Sinai to Hamas, according to a report on egy-press website.

This was to facilitate the conclusion of a comprehensive peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians.

The document, detailing the secret agreement, was reportedly seized by the military after former Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi was deposed.

The Obama administration is trying to reach an agreement with army chief Abdulfateh Al Sissi to keep the deal secret in exchange for a recognition of the legitimacy of the "coup", the website claims.
