CAIRO (AP) - The spokesman of Egypt's military says it will not carry out any exceptional or arbitrary measures against any political group, amid a swift crackdown on the group of the ousted Islamist president, the Muslim Brotherhood.

Col. Ahmed Mohammed Ali said on his official Facebook page late Thursday the armed forces and security agencies want to "ensure national reconciliation, constructive justice and tolerance."

He did not say how national reconciliation can be achieved. Security agencies have arrested at least four senior Brotherhood figures, a day after the ouster of Mohammed Morsi, who is also detained. He was replaced by Egypt's chief justice, sworn in as interim president.

Ali said only peaceful protests will be tolerated, urging Egyptians to avoid attacks on Brotherhood offices to prevent an "endless cycle of revenge."
