Cairo pro-Morsi demo to be ended 'legally': minister

27 july 2013, 11:33
A long-running sit-in in Cairo by supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi will be ended "in the framework of the law," AFP reports citing Egypt's Interior Minister Mohammed Ibrahim.

In a telephone interview with satellite television station Al-Hayat, he was asked about the sit-in at Cairo's Rabaa al-Adawiya square.

Tens of thousands of Morsi's supporters have been camped out there since the army ousted him on July 3, as part of their campaign to get him reinstated.

Asked if the army or police planned to break it up, he acknowledged there had been complaints from local residents, adding "...there will be decisions from the prosecutor soon, and this situation will be ended".

But it would be ended "in the framework of the law", he said.

On Friday, hundreds of thousands of pro- and anti-Morsi demonstrators took to the streets of several cities and towns across Egypt.

At least seven people were killed when rival demonstrators clashed in the Mediterranean city of Alexandria.
