Egyptian community in London backs army “mandate”



The Egyptian Defense Attache in London has received several letters from Egyptians based in the United Kingdom backing an armed forces' request to confront "violence and potential terrorism" in Egypt.

 

Letters were reportedly received from Egyptian nationals living inside the European Union, as well as communities in the UK and Northern Ireland.

Egyptian community groups in the UK have called for protests outside the embassy in London on Saturday to support the police and army in its stated attempts to confront terrorism at home.
