Egypt’s Crisis Was No Military Coup, Ambassador to U.S. Says

Egypt’s ambassador to the U.S., Mohamed Tawfik, denied that the military’s ouster of President Mohamed Mursi constituted a coup and said elections will happen as quickly as possible.

“Egypt has not undergone a military coup, and it is certainly not run by the military,” Tawfik said on ABC’s “This Week” program that aired today. “Today there is an interim president in place.”
