Egypt's military to warn against "chaos and disorder"

CAIRO (Reuters) - Egypt’s new military rulers will issue a warning against anyone who creates “chaos and disorder,” an army source said Sunday.

The source said the military statement was now expected to appear Monday, not Sunday as the source had said earlier.

The Higher Military Council will also ban meetings by labour unions or professional syndicates, effectively forbidding strikes, and tell all Egyptians to get back to work after the unrest that toppled Hosni Mubarak.

The army will also say it acknowledges and protects the right of people to protest, the source said.
