ADDIS ABABA - The African Union (AU) on Friday suspended Egypt from all its activities after the Egyptian military overthrew the elected president, Mohamed Morsi, a senior AU official said.

Suspension is the AU's usual response to any interruption of constitutional rule by a member state."As mandated by the relevant AU instruments, the African Union Peace and Security Council decides to suspend the participation of Egypt in AU activities until the restoration of constitutional order," Admore Kambudzi, Secretary of the Peace and Security Council, said after a meeting.
