The Facebook page of Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi quoted him on Wednesday as saying he rejected measures announced by the army as a "military coup".

The army, in a statement aired live on television, appointed a new, interim administration to replace Mursi as president, suspended the constitution and called for an early presidential election.

It was unclear whether Mursi has access to his own Facebook page or if the statement was posted by an aide.
