Egypt's president: Police state has ended

Published: 01.23.14, 21:21 / Israel News

Egypt's military-backed interim president said Thursday that the country's uprisings have put an end to the police state, even as the government came under new criticism over abuses by security forces amid a heavy-handed crackdown on Islamists and other dissenters.

 

Adly Mansour's comments were part of a campaign to rehabilitate the image of the security agencies whose abuses and grip on political life were a major factor fueling the 2011 uprising that ousted autocrat Hosni Mubarak, which marks its third anniversary Saturday. (AP)
