Army Seizes Power in Egypt

Egypt's military deposed Mohamed Morsi, "the nation's first freely elected president, suspending the constitution, installing an interim government and insisting it was responding to the millions of Egyptians who had opposed Mr. Morsi's Islamist agenda and his allies in the Muslim Brotherhood," the New York Times reports.

"The military intervention marked a tumultuous new phase in the politics of the Arab world's most populous country, which overthrew Mr. Morsi's predecessor, Hosni Mubarak, in 2011."
