Army Disobeys Morsi Orders
CAIRO [MENL] -- The Egyptian Army has disobeyed orders by President Mohammed
Morsi to employ live fire against civilian rioters.
Western diplomatic sources said senior army commanders have ordered
their troops not to open fire on civilians amid the nationwide unrest in
Egypt. They said this violated a directive by Morsi that infantry units join
the Central Security Forces in using live fire to stop attacks and looting
by mobs in several Egyptian cities.
