A spokesman for the Egyptian army appeared on state-run media:
We call on you to preserve the riches of your great nation, and to stand up to sabotage. The armed forces are fully aware of the lawful demands raised by honest citizens. And the deployment of the army is for your security. The armed forces will not result to forces against the great people of this great nation.
This is particularly important in light of the “million-man march” planned for tomorrow.
