July 27 - Egypt's deposed Islamist President Mohamed Morsi, who has been accused of murder and other crimes, is likely to be transferred to the same Cairo prison where former leader Hosni Mubarak is now held, the interior minister said on Saturday.

Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim also told a news conference that pro-Morsi sit-ins in Cairo would "God willing, soon ... dealt with" based on a decision by the prosecutor.

He said a decision on where to hold Morsi, whose current location has not been announced, would be up to the investigating judge. When pressed by journalists about where Morsi would be taken, he said "mostly likely to Torah" prison.
