Pro-Mursi vigils to be brought to an end: Egypt interior minister
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 Mohamed Mursi's Muslim Brotherhood have been manning two main vigils in the capital for a month, demanding Mursi be reinstated after his July 3 overthrow by the army.
