Security forces fail to start clearing operation at dawn as promised
Egyptian security forces held off on Monday from launching operations at dawn to disperse supporters of deposed President Mohamed Morsi.
Security sources and a government official had said police would take initial action against Muslim Brotherhood sit-ins in two areas of Cairo early on Monday to end a six-week street standoff between crowds demanding Morsi's reinstatement and the government installed after the army toppled him on July 3.
It was not clear whether police would start a risky confrontation with thousands of supporters of Egypt's first democratically elected president later in the day.
