Egypt's ruling military junta said in a statement that it will not tolerate protests that disrupt the country's economy and will confront them, the official MENA news agency reported.

The Supreme Council of the Armed Forces warned in a statement on Friday that, some groups "organise protests that obstruct production and create critical economic conditions that can lead to a worsening of the country's economy."

"The continuation of instability and its consequences will lead to harming national security," it added.

"The Supreme Council of the Armed Forces will not allow the continuation of these illegal acts which pose a danger to the nation, and they will confront them and take legal measures to protect the nation's security," it said.
