Islamic bloc says chief quits after mocking Egypt president

The world’s largest pan-Islamic body, the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, said its Saudi chief resigned Monday, days after infuriating Egypt over a remark that mocked President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi. OIC Secretary-General Iyad Madani “has resigned for health reasons,” the Jeddah-based organisation said in a statement, two days after Cairo condemned the comment that provoked outrage among Egyptians. Egypt’s Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry has said Madani’s remark was “a serious encroachment against a founding member state of the organisation and its political leadership”.
