Egyptian Army chief warns protesters over disrupting transition
London: Egypt`s defence minister has warned protestors against any attempt to disrupt the country`s `difficult` transition.
Abdel Fattah al-Sisi`s statement comes almost a week after the army ousted Islamist President Mohammed Morsi and appointed top judge Adly Mansour as interim leader.
In a televised speech, el-Sisi said the future of Egypt is too important and sacred for manoeuvres, whatever the justifications.
He said that neither the army nor the people of Egypt would accept the disruption of this difficult and complex period, the BBC reports.
According to the report, Mansour has named former the finance minister, Hazem el-Beblawi, as his prime minister.
el-Beblawi`s appointment was announced early on Tuesday, along with that of Mohamed ElBaradei , who was named deputy president with responsibility for foreign affairs, the report added.
