Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, the former Egyptian army chief who deposed Islamist president Mohamed Mursi and is expected to win a presidential election this month, said there had been two attempts to kill him.
Sisi said in a joint interview with Egypt's privately-owned CBC and ONTV television channels there were "two attempts to assassinate me. I believe in fate, I am not afraid". He did not say when the assassination attempts took place.
Sisi is expected to easily win the May 26-27 presidential election. (Reuters)
