CAIRO (Reuters) - Egypt is facing "war by the forces of extremism" and will confront it with "security measures within the framework of law," Mostafa Hegazy, adviser to Egypt's interim president said.

Hundreds of people have been killed in political violence this week in clashes between security forces and the Muslim Brotherhood.
