Morsi Declares Martial Law In Egypt
President Mohamed Morsi has declared a state of emergency in three provinces hit by rioting which has left dozens dead, warning he was ready to take further steps to confront threats to Egypt's security.

Emergency measures will come into effect in the provinces of Port Said, Suez and Ismailia 'for 30 days starting at midnight' (0900 AEDT Monday), Morsi said in an address on state television on Sunday.

Curfews would be imposed on the same three provinces from 9pm until 6am, he added.

'I have said I am against any emergency measures but I have said that if I must stop bloodshed and protect the people then I will act,' Morsi said.

He warned that he was ready to take further measures if the deadly violence that swept over Egypt since Friday does not end.

'If I must I will do much more for the sake of Egypt. This is my duty and I will not hesitate,' the President warned.

He also held out an olive branch to the opposition and political leaders across Egypt, inviting them for talks on Monday, saying 'there is no alternative to dialogue'.

He added in his brief address: 'There is no going back to freedom and democracy ... the rule of law and social justice that the revolution has paved.'

The opposition has threatened to boycott upcoming parliamentary polls if Mr Morsi did not find a 'comprehensive solution' to the unrest.

"If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."- Samuel Adams
