CAIRO - Egyptian military personnel accused of taking part in violent clashes and human rights violations against protesters will be prosecuted by military courts, an official said on Tuesday.

As clashes between protesters and soldiers firing guns and teargas entered a fifth day, military officials want to show that anyone accused of having a role in bloody crackdowns on previous protests will be held to account.

"The media circulated an argument that no legal actions were taken against those who ran over protesters near Maspero and we say that the case is being looked by the Supreme Military Court," head of the Military Judiciary Authority, General Adel Morsi, said in a statement.
