Egypt’s military moved forcefully to seize power from President Mohamed Morsi on Wednesday, deploying tanks and troops in Cairo and other cities, restricting his travel and convening an emergency meeting of top civilian and religious leaders to devise an interim government and lay the groundwork for new elections.Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi, the Chief of Egyptian armed forces, announced on Egyptian television and said that the country's constitution would be suspended pending new elections to form a new government. According to El-Sisi, the elections would be under the supervision of the constitional court. NBC's Richard Engel reported that hundreds of thousands of protesters in Tahrir Square are celebrating the news, but Morsi supporters consider the military's actions to be a coup. 12:23 PM PT:
