CAIRO - Egypt's Pope Tawadros tweeted his blessing on Tuesday for a youth-led revolt against Islamist President Mohamed Morsi and for army moves to end a political crisis that the ruling Muslim Brotherhood have denounced as a coup.

Reflecting deep anxiety among Egypt's millions of Christians since last year's election victories Morsi and the Brotherhood, the head of the Coptic Church said on Twitter: "A salute, in tribute and glorification, to the trio that makes Egypt great: the people ... the army ... and youth."Long live my country, free and strong.

"How impressive are the Egyptian people, as they reclaim the revolution that was stolen from them, in a civilized and highly elegant manner with the idea of "tamarud" (revolt). I pray for all the people of Egypt."
