President Sisi introduced a new law that has for the first time made sexual harassment a crime
Egypt's new president has ordered the police to launch a crackdown on sexual assaults amid growing public anger.
Abdul Fattah al-Sisi also called for citizens to "reinstate moral values in society" after a graphic video of sexual assault victim went viral.
Mr Sisi's inauguration as president on Sunday was marred by a string of sexual assaults on women in Cairo.
Several men have been arrested over the attacks in Tahrir Square, where his supporters were celebrating.
A statement from President Sisi's office said he had told the Interior Minister to ensure there is full implementation of a new law that has for the first time made sexual harassment a crime.
The law decrees that those found guilty of harassment in public or private will face up to five years in prison and a maximum fine of 50,000 Egyptian pounds ($6,990; £4,160).
