Conflicting reports on who controls state TV

Egypt’s Republican Guards are in control of the state television offices, not regular army units as was reported elsewhere, the Guardian’s Patrick Kingsley says.

Although an elite unit of the Egyptian army, the Republican Guards are nominally under the control of President Morsi and are responsible for, among other things, securing government locations in Cairo, meaning that the television station is likely not under army control after all.
