CAIRO - The Egyptian foreign minister said on Wednesday that Egypt would not accept any interference in its internal affairs, in response to harsh comments made by US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on the way security forces dealt with women protesters.

In a speech on Monday, Clinton criticized the actions of Egyptian security forces as showing the "systematic degradation" of women that "disgraces the state", some of the strongest US language used against Egypt's new rulers.

"Egypt does not accept any interference in its internal affairs and conducts communications and clarifications concerning statements made by foreign officials," the state news agency quoted Foreign Minister Mohamed Kamel Amr as saying.
