Tantawi: 'Foreign Elements' Behind Egypt Unrest

Field Marshal Mohamed Hussein Tantawi, head of Egypt's ruling military council, blamed the ongoing unrest in the country on “foreign elements.” The unnamed elements feed and set up specific projects that some individuals carry out domestically, without understanding. It is possible that there is lack of understanding, that foreign players are pushing the people into inappropriate direction,” he said, adding that “they do not want stability for Egypt.”

Tantawi made a statement in a speech before top Egyptian army officers.
