“We are committed to pressing ahead in turning Egypt to a modern civilian state,” Field Marshall Mohamed Hussein Tantawi said in a televised address on July 23. Tantawi, heading the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces said in a speech to mark the anniversary of the 1952 revolution, a bloodless coup led by military officers that ousted King Farouk and marked the end of direct British influence.
The ruling military council, in a statement on its Facebook page, denied the authorities used force against demonstrators and accused the April 6 Movement, one of the main groups behind the uprising that toppled Mubarak, of trying to drive a wedge between the armed forces and the people. April 6 described the army statement as “misleading allegations,” adding: “We will not be scared by any allegation lacking in evidence or support.”
