Egypt's President Mohamed Morsi and the army bolstered a denial of charges of military abuses committed against demonstrators since the 2011 revolution, AFP reported Saturday.

The AFP report follows publication of excerpts leaked by British newspaper The Guardian, on Thursday, from an inquiry commissioned by Morsi. The inquiry documented alleged abuse and malpractice conducted by senior army doctors during protest against the interim military rule in 2012, who ordered for operation on wounded demonstrators without the use of anesthesia.

Killings, torture and disappearances conducted by the military since the 2011 uprising against Mubarak, were also reported among atrocities mentioned in The Guardian leaks.
