The statement Monday described as "glorious" the mass protests on Sunday that brought out millions of Egyptians calling for President Mohammed Morsi's ouster.

The military underlined it will "not be a party in politics or rule." But it said it has a responsibility to act because Egypt's national security is facing a "grave danger," according to the statement, read out on state television.
