The quasi-ruling Supreme Council of the Armed Forces is currently holding an urgent meeting to discuss a number of unspecified matters, according the Al-Ahram Arabic news website.

The meeting comes after Wednesday's meeting between SCAF chief Field Marshall Hussein Tantawi and President Mohamed Morsi.

On Tuesday, new Prime Minister Hisham Qandil said there were ongoing discussions between Tantawi and Morsi on who would be appointed to the post of defence minister in the new cabinet.

According to the constitutional addendum issued by the SCAF in late June, the military will appoint the defence minister.
