CAIRO - Egypt said on Thursday it would not be involved in any military intervention in its neighbour Libya after US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said discussions were under way about possible Arab involvement.

"Egypt will not be among those Arab states. We will not be involved in any military intervention. No intervention period," Egyptian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Menha Bakhoum told Reuters.

She was responding to comments by Clinton, who visited Egypt before traveling to Tunisia where she spoke on Thursday about a possible Arab role. A French diplomatic source also said any action could involve France, Britain, the United States and one or more Arab states.
