On June 3, 2013, the Egyptian military announced that it had suspended the Islamist-backed constitution and that embattled President Mohammed Morsi would be replaced. The announcement came after millions of Egyptians began demanding Morsi's ouster on June 30, 2013.
Since Morsi was removed from power, Egypt's streets have been dominated by rallies in support of the military or smaller, near daily protests by Morsi's backers, amid a heavy crackdown on Islamists. - AP
