PARIS - Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi has cancelled a planned visit to Paris this week, France's presidency said on Tuesday, as a political crisis flares in Egypt.

Morsi had been due to arrive in Paris on Thursday afternoon following a visit to Berlin on Wednesday and later meet Hollande over breakfast on Friday.

Morsi's spokesman Yasser Ali said in Cairo that the president would reschedule a visit at another time.

When pressed to give a reason, he said: "The president will travel to Germany on a one-day trip and return to Egypt to closely follow the situation."

Morsi declared a month-long state of emergency on Monday in three cities on the Suez Canal in the face of violent anti-government protests.
