Egypt unrest: Morsi declares emergency amid unrest


Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi has declared a state of emergency in the cities of Port Said, Suez and Ismalia after days of deadly unrest.

A curfew from 21:00 to 06:00 will be imposed for 30 days from Monday. At least 33 people died at the weekend in Port Said, after a court judgment sparked rioting.

The BBC's Yolande Knell said that there was anger on the streets of Port Said, while there have also been anti-Morsi protests in Cairo recent days.
