AMAN, July 27 (Online): Jordan denied Tuesday having knowledge or information about Pakistani suspects in the Sharm el-Sheik bombings who entered Egypt with Jordanian passports.

Interior Minister Aouni Yerfas said Jordan had not received official notification from the Egyptian authorities about the arrest of Pakistani suspects traveling with forged Jordanian passports.

Egypt suspects at least six Pakistani nationals of connections to Saturday's triple bombing attacks in Egypt's Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheik in which more than 80 people were killed and 200 injured. A group calling itself the Brigades of Martyr Abdullah Azzam al-Qaida Organizaton in Bilad Sham and Egypt claimed responsibility for the attacks.

The son of Abdullah Azzam, Hotheifa, rejected any links between his late father, who was regarded as the spiritual guide of al-Qaida chief Osama bin Laden, and the Sharm el-Sheik bombings. "If my father was still alive, he would be the first to fight such acts and the idea of killing innocent people," Hotheifa Azzam said.

Abdullah Azzam, who was killed in a car bomb in Pakistan in 1989, was the founder of Arab Islamic groups who fought against Soviet forces during their occupation of Afghanistan in the 1980's.
