Egypt’s military-backed interim government has resigned, Prime Minister Hazem Beblawi has announced.

The state-run al-Ahram newspaper said Housing Minister Ibrahim Mihlib was expected to succeed Mr Beblawi.

The decision was made after a cabinet meeting on Monday attended by armed forces chief and Defence Minister, Field Marshal Abdul Fattah al-Sisi.

The field marshal, who ousted Mohammed Morsi in July, is expected to announce soon that he will run for president.
