Egypt holds off on ending curfew

CAIRO

A court declared that Egypt’s 3-month-old state of emergency expired Tuesday, two days earlier than expected, but the military and security officials held off from implementing the ruling and lifting a nighttime curfew, amid worries that the measures’ end will fuel protests by supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi.

Morsi, meanwhile, had his first extensive meeting with lawyers in a prison near the Mediterranean city of Alexandria. He had been in secret military detention with almost no contact with the outside world since he was ousted in a July 3 popularly backed coup, but he was moved to a regular prison last week after the first session of his trial on charges of inciting murder.
