Dissident: Islamists tried to steal Egypt revolution

Hamdeen Sabahi, who placed third in Egypt's first free presidential race over the summer, said in an interview with The Associated Press that the majority of Egypt's people are not Islamists.


"The Muslim Brotherhood is a minority - this is for sure. They get majority votes because of division within the opposition," he said. Sabahi said the Islamist groups in the country "for sure have tried to steal" the revolution that toppled authoritarian President Hosni Mubarak neat two years ago- "but we will prevent them." (AP)
