CAIRO, Feb 25 (Reuters) - Egypt's prime minister-designate said on Tuesday his government would work to "crush terrorism" and that he hoped to form his new cabinet quickly.

"We will work together to restore security and safety to Egypt and crush terrorism in all corners of the country," Ibrahim Mahlab told a news conference after interim head of state Adly Mansour asked him to form the new government.
