Islamist-backed Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi is drastically losing the support of his cabinet - along with the sympathies of the public. At least 5 ministers resigned amid anti-government protests which were joined by millions, with the military promising to deploy on Tahrir square to guard the demonstrators. RT's Bel Trew reports from Cairo.

President Mohamed Morsi has been stripped of his power by the Egyptian army and the constitution has been suspended, General Abdel Fattah el-Sisi said in a statement. Egypt's chief justice of the constitutional court will become the interim president. Fireworks were set off over Cairo's Tahrir Square and across the city in celebration.
