TUNIS - Tunisian President Moncef Marzouki said on Thursday that the army's removal of Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi was unacceptable and urged Egypt to guarantee Morsi's safety.

But French President Francois Hollande declined at a joint news conference with Marzouki in Tunis to speak of a coup, saying merely that "the democratic process has stopped and must return".

Marzouki said: "Military intervention is totally unacceptable and we call on Egypt to ensure that Morsi is physically protected."

He added: "We view what is happening in Egypt with concern - the arrests of journalists and politicians."
