Egypt’s Morsi ‘Told He Is No Longer President’

Fresh presidential and parliamentary elections are to be announced in Egypt amid reports that Mohamed Morsi has been told he is no longer in charge of the country.

Egypt’s state-run Al-Ahram newspaper reported on its website that the army told Mr Mursi at 7pm (6pm UK time) that he was no longer head of state, quoting a presidential source.

The country’s leading Muslim and Christian clerics and opposition leader Mohamed ElBaradei will shortly unveil the details of a political road map for a short transitional period followed by new national polls, state news agency MENA reported.
