Morsi ousted, tanks in streets, U.S. ‘very concerned’
CAIRO, July 3 (UPI) — Egyptian media said President Mohamed Morsi “is no longer able” to make decisions and a U.S. official said Washington is “very concerned” by upheaval in Egypt.
Egyptian army divisions were deployed in Cairo and other cities Wednesday to prevent violence after Morsi was removed from the palace, media reports said. In what Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood party called a military coup, tanks were deployed in the capital’s streets and soldiers beefed up their presence in other cities, after a 48-hour ultimatum delivered by the army failed to secure Morsi’s resignation.
