Abdel Fattah el-Sisi has used his first speech as Egypt's president to promise to "defeat terrorism", saying there will be no reconciliation with those who use violence against Egyptians.

Sisi, who led last year's military coup against Mohamed Morsi, also promised to tackle corruption, improve investment and concentrate on improving the life of the country’s poor during his speech at Monday's swearing-in ceremony.
