Egyptian Authorities Delaying Dispersal of Sit-Ins to "Avoid Bloodshed"

Plan was leaked to media


An Egyptian security official says authorities have postponed a move to disperse two sit-ins by supporters of the country's ousted president to "avoid bloodshed."

The official says the decision to postpone an advance against the protest camps by Muslim Brotherhood supporters came after a plan on ending the sit-ins was leaked to the media.
