CAIRO - An Egyptian alliance of Islamist parties including the Muslim Brotherhood said late on Monday it rejected attempts by some to use the army to "assault legitimacy" in a partisan way that would lead to a coup.

In a statement read out at a press conference, the alliance also said it respected all initiatives to resolve the country's political crisis, but they had to respect constitutional principles.
