Egyptian army, police to deal firmly with violations of law: TV

CAIRO (Reuters) - Egypt's army and police will deal firmly with any violation of the law, state television reported on Friday, as security was tightened ahead of protests over a crackdown on Islamists.

Supporters of deposed President Mohamed Mursi are taking to the streets of Egypt to hold demonstrations after security forces killed hundreds of Islamists on Wednesday.
