FILE - This Oct. 15, 2013 file photo released by the Egyptian Presidency shows interim President Adly Mansour, center, interim Prime Minister Hazem el-Beblawi, fourth from left, and Defense Minister Gen. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, second from right, pray on the first day of Eid al-Aha, or Feast of Sacrifice, 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/Egyptian Presidency, File)
