    A video has emerged which appears to show Egypt's military generals deciding how to deal with the country's media. The footage - released by activists - shows General al-Sisi addressing senior officers of the army in the months before Mohamed Morsi was ousted from power. The recording starts with an officer urging Sisi to find a way to frighten journalists from criticising the army.
