Egypt's Islamist President Mohammed Morsi on Saturday announced the "definitive" severing of relations with war-torn Syria, which is suffering from more than two years of civil war.
Egypt "decided today to definitively break off relations with the current regime in Syria, to close that regime's embassy in Cairo and to recall Egypt's charge d'affaires" from Damascus, Morsi told thousands of Islamist supporters in a Cairo stadium for a "Support for Syria" rally.
Morsi also slammed Hizbullah's interference in the Syrian war.
"Egyptians stood by Hizbullah in 2006 and today we stand against the party for its involvement in the war against the people," he said.
The Egyptian president stressed: "We demand Hizbullah to leave Syria."
