Baku-APA. The Egyptian presidency announced on Wednesday a state of emergency nationwide for one month, due to the current turmoil over the dispersing of pro-Morsi protesters, APA reports quoting Xinhua.

The presidency's statement said that imposing the state of emergency was due to ongoing dangers and deliberate sabotage acts by some extremist groups, implying supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi.

The statement added that interim President Adli Mansour has assigned the armed forces to assist the police forces to take necessary measures to protect citizens' lives as well as public and private properties.

On Wednesday, at least 95 people were killed and 874 others injured across Egypt as security forces disbanded major pro-Morsi sit-ins at two vital squares in Cairo and Giza, a health official told Xinhua.
