FILE - In this Friday, Sept. 20, 2013 file photo, Egypt's Defense Minister Gen. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, center, Egyptian Prime Minister Hazem el-Beblawi, right, and army's Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Sedki Sobhi, left, attend the funeral of Giza Police Gen. Nabil Farrag in Cairo, Egypt. The head of Egypt’s military, Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, is riding on a wave of popular fervor that is almost certain to carry him to election as president. Unknown only two years ago, a broad sector of Egyptians now hail him as the nation’s savior after he ousted the Islamists from power, and the state-backed personality cult around him is so eclipsing, it may be difficult to find a candidate to oppose him if he runs. Still, if he becomes president, he faces the tough job of ruling a deeply divided nation that has already turned against two leaders. (AP Photo/Hassan Ammar, File)
