President Morsi overthrown in Egypt
The Egyptian army has overthrown President Mohamed Morsi, announcing a roadmap for the country’s political future that will be implemented by a National Reconciliation Committee.
The head of Egypt's armed forces issued a declaration on Wednesday evening suspending the constitution and appointing the head of the constitutional court as interim head of state.
In a televised broadcast, flanked by military leaders, religious authorities and political figures, General Abdel
Fattah al-Sisi effectively declared the removal of elected Islamist President Mohamed Morsi.
Sisi called for presidential and parliamentary elections, a panel to review the constitution and a national reconciliation committee that would include youth movements. He said the roadmap had been agreed by a range of political groups.
50 hours ago, the Egyptian military gave President Muhammad Mursi a 48-hour deadline to open his Islamic Government to the civic opposition groups, or else- the "else" is not pretty clear but they have hinted they'd remove him, call for a technocratic Government and ammend the Islamic constitution before considering any new elections.
Events developing right now, with tanks heading to Tahrir Square to join the thousands of people who have been demosntrating for Morsi's resignation for the last days.
"Los españoles son muy españoles y mucho españoles. Muchas gracias"
- Mariano Rajoy, presidente del Gobierno de España.
