The Supreme Council of the Armed Forces has accepted the resignation of Egypt’s Cabinet, Field Marshal Mohamed Hussein Tantawi said Tuesday.
Tantawi denied the military wants to stay in power and said protesters are trying to “drag us back into the past.” He added the government is “trying hard to be tolerant.”
Twenty-nine protesters have died in the clashes since Saturday, said Hisham Sheeha, spokesman for Egypt’s Health Ministry. About 1,785 people have been injured, he said. (Source: CNN)
