The Muslim Brotherhood is reportedly moving its headquarters to Austria from London due to a new investigation of the group by Prime Minister David Cameron’s government.

The Islamist group, which was named a terrorist entity by both Egypt and Saudi Arabia, has come under increasing scrutiny in Britain and in various Arab countries.

According to a report on Saturday on the Daily Mail website, the group decided to move its headquarters to Graz, Austria after Cameron launched a joint investigation by both its domestic intelligence agency MI5 and its foreign one, MI6.

The group had recently relocated its international office to Cricklewood in northwestern London, above an out-ofbusiness kebab shop.

Cameron announced April 1 that his government was launching a probe into the Brotherhood’s activities in Britain and its links to terrorism.

“What is important... is to make sure we fully understand what this organization is, what it stands for, what its links are, what its beliefs are in terms of both extremism and violent extremism, what its connections are with other groups, what its presence is here in the United Kingdom,” Cameron said.
