Egypt's al-Sisi: No reconciliation with Islamists

CAIRO - Egypt's newly sworn-in president has vowed there will not be any reconciliation with anyone who had "committed crimes" or "adopted violence" against Egyptians, a thinly veiled reference to the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamists.


Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi was addressing a gathering at a Cairo presidential palace late Sunday, hours after he was sworn in as Egypt's president before the Supreme Constitutional Court.


The 59-year-old career soldier did not mention the Muslim Brotherhood by name or supporters of the Islamist Mohammed Morsi, the president he ousted in July after just a year in office. (AP)
