Army told Morsi he was no longer president

The Egyptian army told President Morsi that he was no longer president at around 7 p.m., according to an anonymous source from Morsi’s inner circle, Ahram Online reports.

Several Islamic groups have come out against the army’s ultimatum and plan to remove Morsi from power, Ahram also reports, but Maha Abou Bakr, a senior opposition figure, has suggested an interim government comprised of leaders from across the political spectrum, including the Islamists.
