Interior Minister vows to ban pro-Morsi protests

July 27, 2013 01:45

Sit-in protests in Cairo by supporters of Egypt's deposed Islamist president will be "brought to an end soon and in a legal manner," interim Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim was quoted as saying by state-run news website Al Ahram.

Ibrahim said the protests would be cleared in line with complaints filed by residents in the area. Supporters of deposed leader Muhamed Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood have been manning two main vigils in the capital for a month, demanding Morsi be reinstated after his July 3 overthrow by the army.
