Coup In Egypt: The army overthrew the elected president Morsi

Coup in Egypt: The army overthrew the elected president Morsi

The military overthrew Wednesday Islamist Mohamed Morsi, the first democratically elected civilian president of Egypt, after a tumultuous year in power marked by repeated crises sometimes deadly.

Consultations for the formation of the next government begin "now", announced on the night of Wednesday to Thursday the opponent and former presidential candidate Amr Moussa.

In a first reaction, Morsi, faced during his presidency in a popular protest that peaked in recent days, said that "the coup was rejected by all free men in the country", thus casting risk the continuing standoff. The announcement of the army was met with an explosion of joy in the tens of thousands of his opponents protesting en masse across the country.

This dramatic development recalls the fall of the regime of Hosni Mubarak was ousted in February 2011 after 18 days of mass protests calling for his departure.
