CAIRO, July 3 (Itar-Tass) - Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi has been put under house arrest, the Al Hayat television channel said on Wednesday, July 3.
The information has so far not been confirmed officially.
Meanwhile, law enforcers have been ordered to use weapons to protect the people and protesters.
The order signed by Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim and posted on Facebook allows the use of service weapons in instances provided for in law in order to counter terrorist attacks which may occur after Defence Minister Abdul Fattah al-Sisi’s statement expected to be made shortly.
Last night, a fight broke out between Islamists and local residents in front of Cairo University after Morsi’s speech. The supporters of Muslim Brotherhood fired rifles at people, killing 17 and injuring over 600.
The army and police have been put in a state of full combat readiness following reports that entrenched Islamic extremists are planning to attack law enforcers if Morsi resigns.
