The Facebook page of Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi quoted him on Wednesday as saying he rejected measures announced by the army as a "military coup."
The army, in a statement aired live on television, appointed a new, interim administration to replace Morsi as president, suspended the constitution and called for an early presidential election.
It was unclear whether Morsi has access to his own Facebook page or if the statement was posted by an aide.
