CAIRO - Egypt's Abdel Fattah al-Sisi said on Wednesday he had resigned from his positions as defence minister and army chief and announced he would run for the presidency in a forthcoming election that he is expected to win easily.

In a televized statement, Sisi said he could not "perform miracles" and called on Egyptians to work hard to improve their country. The 59-year old who deposed President Mohamed Mursi last year also said Egypt was threatened by terrorists and he would work to make a country "free of fear".
