CAIRO, July 18 (Reuters) - Egypt's interim president, Adli Mansour, said on Thursday some people were trying to drive Egypt into "chaos" and promised to restore stability and security to the country.
"We are going through a critical stage and some want us to move towards chaos and we want to move towards stability. Some want a bloody path," Mansour said in a televised speech, his first since he was sworn in on July 4.
"We will fight a battle for security until the end," he added. (Reporting by Yasmine Saleh and Ulf Laessing and Ahmed Tolba)
