CAIRO – The head of the Egyptian military warned political conflict could lead to the collapse of the state and said protecting the Suez Canal was one of the main objectives of the army deployment to nearby cities shaken by violence.
Protesters defied a curfew in towns along the Suez Canal overnight, attacking police stations after President Mohamed MorsiÂ imposed emergency rule to end days of clashes that have killed at least 52 people.
The remarks of General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, who is also defense minister, were published on the official Facebook page of the army spokesman.
