Egypt's army says no exceptional measures against any


08:19, July 05, 2013

CAIRO, July 4 (Xinhua) -- The Egyptian armed forces said late Thursday it avoids taking any exceptional measures against any political group or party in the country, a day after ousting Islamist-oriented President Mohamed Morsi.

Acknowledging that the country is undergoing a "delicate phase, " the army said in a press release that it strives to achieve " Egyptians' hopes summed up in freedom, dignity, fraternity, equality, justice and peace," state-run news agency MENA reported.

The army meanwhile called for preventing revenge attacks on specific groups.

The call was made after Egypt's Islamist forces urged on Thursday for pro-Morsi demonstrations across the country on Friday to express "rejection of the military coup."

Although the organizers of the protests asked Morsi's backers to stick to peacefulness, fears of possible violent clashes still mount, as confrontations between pro- and anti-Morsi citizens have killed four and injured dozens in Morsi's hometown in Sharqiya on Thursday.

Also late on Thursday, the Muslim Brotherhood (MB), from which Morsi hails, urged all parties and groups in Egypt to stop bloodshed and exercise self-restraint, condemning all kinds of violent acts against peaceful protests.

Morsi was ousted by the military on Wednesday after he failed to respond to millions of protesters who took to the streets to demand his removal and an early presidential election.

According to official lawyer of the MB group, Adel-Moneim Abdel- Maqsood, who spoke to Xinhua on Thursday, Morsi "is currently put under home arrest at the Republican Guards Club."
