More than 200 Turkish truck drivers have been stranded in Egypt after the ouster of President Mohammed Morsi in a military coup on Wednesday.

The Turkish media reported that the drivers are not allowed to leave the country, where violence has not stopped since the coup. A Turkish ship which went to Egypt to bring the drivers back to Turkey was not allowed to dock at Egytian ports either, reports say.

The Egyptian military forced Morsi out on Wednesday. After its top leaders were targeted with arrest warrants, the Muslim Brotherhood hotly rejected an appeal by the military to take part in forming a new regime. Supporters and opponents of ousted President Morsi fought overnight street battles that left at least 30 dead across the increasingly divided country on Friday.
