CAIRO (AP) Egypt's military leader has vowed the army will not stand by silently in the face of violence after hundreds have been killed in recent days in political unrest.

Gen. Abdel-Fatah El-Sissi also said Sunday that the Army has no intention to seize power while calling on Islamists to join the political process.

El-Sissi led the July 3 coup that ousted President Mohammed Morsi. His comments came during his first appearance since a deadly crackdown Wednesday on two encampments of Morsi supporters left hundreds dead.

El-Sissi appeared at a gathering of top military commanders and police chiefs.
