The European Union "won’t go too far" in condemning the Egyptian military’s brutal crackdown on supporters of ousted President Mohamed Morsi, Egyptian news organization Al-Ahram reported Monday, citing a European diplomat in Cairo.

According to Al-Ahram’s English website, Egyptian military leader General Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi has sought to calm Western concerns over the recent violence that has claimed more than 800 lives, telling a meeting of senior army officials in Cairo on Sunday that Egypt will not be ruled by the military, and that a plan of action devised after Morsi’s ouster to restore democracy would be adhered to.
