Crisis in Egypt
CAIRO (AP) - Egypt's military leader has vowed the army will not stand by silently in the face of violence after hundreds have been killed in recent days in political unrest.
Gen. Abdel-Fatah el-Sissi also said Sunday that the Army has no intention to seize power while calling on Islamists to join the political process.
El-Sissi led the July 3 coup that ousted President Mohammed Morsi. His comments came during his first appearance since a deadly crackdown Wednesday on two encampments of Morsi supporters left hundreds dead.
El-Sissi appeared at a gathering of top military commanders and police chiefs.
