(Cairo)  --  Ousted Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi is calling his removal from power a "military coup."  His official social media pages are quoting Mursi as saying that he rejected calls from the military for shared power due to his viewpoints on the takeover.  Military officials announced today they were suspending the nation's constitution and also said Mursi was no longer in power.  The now former leader is calling for his supporters to act peacefully as they demonstrate in the streets of Cairo.
