Egypt's President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi suggested the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood could again play a role in public life if Egyptians would welcome that, ahead of a visit to Britain criticized by rights campaigners.Sisi, who launched the toughest crackdown on Islamists in Egypt's modern history after toppling President Mohamed Mursi of the Brotherhood, will arrive in London on Wednesday and meet Prime Minister David Cameron to boost the countries' ties.The Brotherhood, the Middle East's oldest Islamist movement and long Egypt's main political opposition, says it is committed to peaceful activism designed to reverse what it calls a military coup, when Sisi seized power from Mursi in 2013 .Sisi has said tough security measures were needed to protect Egypt from what he describes as terrorist attacks by militants.
