Egypt's Suleiman says will not run for president

CAIRO, Feb 3 (Reuters) - Egypt’s Vice President Omar Suleiman will not put himself forward for the presidency, he said in a pre-recorded interview on state television on Thursday.

He said the country had “at least $1 billion lost in tourism in the last nine days” and that 1 million tourists had left during the turmoil. (editing by Alison Williams)
