A retired Egyptian general says the protesters who came under attack by soldiers were “delinquents who deserve to be thrown into Hitler’s ovens.”
Gen. Abdel Moneim Kato, who serves as an adviser to the military’s public relations department, made the remarks in an interview with the Egyptian newspaper al-Shorouk on Monday.
The invocation of Nazi Germany came just hours before Egypt’s military rulers claimed to have foiled a plot to burn down the country’s parliament building.
