Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi has declared a state of emergency in the cities of Port Said, Suez and Ismalia after days of deadly unrest.

He said in a speech to the nation, that a daily curfew from 9:00pm to 06:00 Am will be imposed for 30 days from today.

At least 33 people died over the weekend in Port Said, where a court judgment sparked rioting.

Unhappiness with Morsi's rule fuelled unrest elsewhere.
