      Egypt's Army Backs Sisi for Presidency


      Egypt's top military body on Monday backed its commander Abdel Fattah al-Sisi to run for the presidency, which he is assured to win after, AFP reported.

      Sisi, wildly popular for overthrowing Islamist president Mohammed Morsi, is now expected to resign as army chief and put himself forward as a candidate in the election scheduled to be held by mid-April.
