An African Union (AU) delegation met with deposed Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi on Tuesday.

The African Union Wise Men Committee  delegation, led by former Malian president Alpha Omar Konare, spent an hour with Morsi at an undisclosed location, state news agency MENA reported.

This is the second meeting between a foreign delegation and Morsi since he was ousted by the military on 3 July amid nationwide protests against his rule.

EU Foreign Policy Chief Catherine Ashton confirmed on Tuesday that she had met Morsi for two hours late on Monday.

Earlier on Tuesday, the AU delegation met a number of Egyptian officials, including army chief Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi and interim Foreign Minister Nabil Fahmy.

Egypt was suspended from the AU following Mohamed Morsi's removal.

Egypt's interim leaders have sent six special envoys to African countries to explain their version of events.

CIA sgent?
Is it really inconceivable that Sisi works for the CIA or Mossad? Otherwise, why is he rocking Egypt and murdering people?

AU & Egypt
I have the honour to slaute AU for their couragious step to remove Egypt from AU organization. Miltary dictatorship is never ever an answer to the political problems. Most of the armies in the third-world are bribed by USA in the form of Military aid to be employed against the elected civilian rulers and Egypt is not an exception.
