CAIRO, August 15 (Itar-Tass) - Ousted president Mohammed Morsi’s arrest has been extended to 30 days, said Egyptian news agency MENA.
Morsi was taken into custody July 26. He was accused of several of espionage and treason, prison breaks during mass anti-government protests in 2011 as well as conspiring with the Palestinian Hamas group.
Death toll from Wednesday’s violence in Egypt, which swept Cairo and some provinces, has risen to 525 as reported by the country's Health Ministry. Nearly three thousand people were injured.
Fierce clashes between police and supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood erupted after police on Wednesday began to clear protesters’ camps in Cairo. The Islamists retaliated with acts of sabotage and provocations across the country. Dozens of police stations, buildings of local authorities and several Coptic and Greek churches were put on fire. In a number of areas armed Islamists mounted attacks against police offices.
The European Union believes that the state of emergency has to be lifted as soon as possible, said EU Foreign Policy Chief Catherine Ashton.
