CAIRO - The family of ousted Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi said on Monday it would take legal action against the army, accusing it of abducting the country's first democratically-elected president.

Morsi has been held at an undisclosed military facility since the army removed him from office on July 3 and suspended the constitution in the wake of huge street protests against his one-year rule.

The army says Islamist Morsi is being held for his own safety.
