Egypt’s military rulers warned on Friday that they would use “the utmost firmness” against anyone they deem to threaten “the higher interests of the country” just as tens of thousands of demonstrators flooded into Tahrir Square here for the fourth day of demonstrations against the dissolution of Parliament and reassertion of their power.

The military council blamed the Muslim Brotherhood for raising tensions by releasing presidential election results early,and defended decisions granting itself sweeping powers.

Protesters rallied in Tahrir Square to support the Brotherhood’s candidate for president,Mohammed Morsi. The protesters denounced what they perceive as the military’s power grab that strips the next leader of much of his authority.
