Egypt's interim president, Adli Mansour, has issued a swift plan of the process of changing the constitution and setting parliamentary and presidential elections for early 2014.
Under the constitutional declaration drafted late last night, the following timetable was set out:
- Two new committees will be appointed to work out amendments to the Islamist-drafted constitution controversially passed by ousted president Morsi
- A referendum on the new document will be held within four months
- Elections for a new parliament will be held two months after that - around mid February.
- Once the new parliament convenes it will have a week to set up new presidential elections
The Muslim Brotherhood tells ITV News they are against violence but will "pay the price of their blood" to restore their ousted president.
Egypt's army has named two further officials in the transitional government as its supporters and opponents vowed to stay on the streets.
There has been outrage in Egypt after 51 people were killed near an barracks where ousted President Mohamed Morsi is thought to be held.
