Egyptian authorities are in contact with the Interpol for the arrest of Gamaa Islamiya leader Assem Abdel-Maged, currently in Qatar, over accusations of incitement to violence.
"Egypt and Qatar don't have an extradition agreement," a judicial source told Anadolu Agency on Sunday.
"The Egyptian authorities have contacted Interpol to place Abdel-Maged on the international wanted list so that he would be arrested if he travelled to any state that has an extradition agreement with Egypt," he added.
Abdel-Maged appeared Saturday on the Qatar-based Al-Jazeera network and local media published his pictures while staying in a Doha hotel.
This was his first public appearance since Egyptian security forces violently dispersed two major sit-ins by supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi, leaving hundreds dead and thousands injured.
Gamaa Islamiya is a major component of the National Alliance for the Defense of Legitimacy, the main Morsi support bloc.
Abdel-Maged's presence in Doha is likely to further deteriorate Egyptian-Qatari relations.
Relations have been strained since Morsi's ouster by the military on July 3.
Egypt's interim administration has repeatedly accused Al-Jazeera of siding with Morsi and spotlighting his supporters' demonstrators in its Egypt coverage, an accusation the channel denies.
Qatar was a major supporter and financer of the Morsi regime.
