Egypt’s interim government has been sworn in, with army chief Gen Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, who led the ousting of Mohammed Morsi, becoming deputy PM as well as defense minister.

Hazem al-Beblawi is the new PM, under the interim President Adly Mansour.

The swearing in followed another night of violence between security forces and Morsi supporters that left seven dead.

A spokesman for Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood called the interim government "illegitimate".

Morsi was ousted on 3 July in what many have said was a military coup.

The army said it was fulfilling the demands of the people after mass anti-Morsi protests.
