CAIRO - Egypt's interim president has made it a crime to disrespect the national flag or fail to stand for the national anthem, state media said on Saturday.

Authorities have moved to restrict protests and bolster their nationalist credentials since then-army chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi ousted Islamist President Mohamed Morsi last year.

Some Islamist protesters added slogans or symbols to flags during protests after Morsi's overthrow.
