The British government denied on Monday a media report that it had delayed publication of an investigation into Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood--because of disagreements among ministers over its findings. The Financial Times newspaper, citing official sources, said on Sunday the report had found that the Brotherhood should not be labeled a terrorist organization, and had found little evidence its members were involved in terrorist activities. However, the newspaper added, ministers afraid of a backlash from allies in the Middle East have stalled the publication of the report for several weeks.
