Cairo. Egypt's army stressed on Monday that it will not use force against tens of thousands of people demonstrating around the country to demand the ouster of President Hosni Mubarak, state news agency Mena reported, cited by AFP.
"The armed forces have not and will not resort to the use of force against the Egyptian people," said an army statement carried by MENA.
The statement comes as demonstrators prepare million-strong marches in several cities on Tuesday and as the hated police, whose clashes with protesters left more than 125 dead, last week returned to the streets after two days' absence.
Without a people's army the people have nothing.
