Valin Posted January 27, 2013 Share Posted January 27, 2013 BBC: 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. (Snip) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
