Politics Breaking News: Egypt's Morsi Removed From Power by Military

by Wochit 1:12 mins

Despite Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi's insistence he would remain in power, the country's army chief has announced that Morsi is being replaced by the chief justice of the constitutional court. The military chief added that he has suspended the Islamist-backed constitution, that a new Cabinet will be formed and warned that the armed forces and police will deal 'decisively' with violence. Was the overthrow of Egypt's Islamist government on Wednesday a coup? Much hangs on the exact words used to describe what happened. If the U.S. government determines the Egyptian military carried out a coup, it could affect the $1.5 billion in economic and military assistance Washington gives Egypt each year. Hours after military action ousted President Muhammed Morsi, Saad el-Katatni, the head of the Muslim Brotherhood political party and Rashad Bayoum, the Brotherhood's deputy chief have been arrested. The two were wanted, along with Morsi in connection with an escape of 30 Brotherhood members from prison during the 2011 uprising against autocrat Hosni Mubarak.
