Egypt’s Military Government Extends State of Emergency for Two Months

Egypt is extending its state of emergency for a further two months.

The president's office said the decision had been taken because of the security situation.

The current state of emergency was introduced in August after hundreds died following the clearing of protest camps set up in support of the ousted Islamist president, Mohammed Morsi.

A separate decision will be made on the night-time curfew which is in effect in parts of the country.
