Canadian Press NewsAlert: Adly Mansour sworn in as Egypt's interim president

Opponents of Egypt's Islamist President Mohammed Morsi celebrate as they light flares and wave national flags and his picture with Arabic reads, "leave", in Tahrir Square in Cairo, Egypt, Wednesday, July 3, 2013. Army troops backed by armor and including commandos have deployed across much of the Egyptian capital, near protest sites and at key facilities and major intersections. The deployment is part of a bid by the military to tighten its control of key institutions Wednesday, slapping a travel ban on embattled president Mohammed Morsi and top allies in preparation for an almost certain push to remove the Islamist president with the expiration of an afternoon deadline.
