Egypt unrest: Morsi declares emergency in three cities


Recommended Posts


27 January 2013


Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi has declared a state of emergency in the cities of Port Said, Suez and Ismalia after days of deadly unrest.


A daily curfew from 21:00 to 06:00 will be imposed for 30 days from Monday, he said in a speech to the nation.


At least 33 people died over the weekend in Port Said, where a court judgment sparked rioting.


Unhappiness with Mr Morsi's rule fuelled unrest elsewhere.


In the capital Cairo, anti-government protesters clashed with security forces near Tahrir Square for a fourth consecutive day.
