From Al Jazeera:

The Egyptian army has overthrown President Mohamed Morsi, announcing a roadmap for the country’s political future that will be implemented by a national reconciliation committee. The head of Egypt’s armed forces issued a declaration on Wednesday evening suspending the constitution and appointing the head of the constitutional court as interim head of state. Morsi’s presidential Facebook page quoted the disposed president as saying he rejected the army statement as a military coup. In a televised broadcast, flanked by military leaders, religious authorities and political figures, General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi effectively declared the removal of  Morsi.

Sounds like a reasonably benevolent military coup, as military coups go. People seem happy (hopefully women won’t get raped in the excitement). As for that suspended constitution; I’m no expert but wasn’t it an Islamic constitution? Good riddance. Religion and politics are a toxic mix whether it’s in Egypt, Israel or the United States.
