CAIRO (Reuters) - Egyptian security forces will not allow any more sit-ins anywhere in the country, Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim said on Wednesday, after the police broke up two Cairo protest camps set up by supporters of deposed President Mohamed Mursi.

"We will not allow any other sit-in in any square in any place in the country," Ibrahim said in a televised news conference.
