Egypt tense as army deadline for Morsi looms

Posted by Ethio Tribune on July 3, 2013

Tensions are high in Egypt as an army ultimatum for President Mohammed Morsi to resolve deadly unrest approaches.

Clashes broke out at rival protests across the country overnight, with at least 16 pro-Morsi protesters killed at a demonstration at Cairo University.

The army has said it will shed its blood to defend Egypt against “any terrorist, radical or fool”.

Mr Morsi insists he is the legitimate leader and will not give in to “violence and thuggery” by resigning.

In a defiant televised speech on Tuesday evening, he too said he would give his life to defend constitutional legitimacy, and blamed the unrest on corruption and remnants of the ousted regime of Hosni Mubarak.>>read more
