      CAIRO (Reuters) -
      Egypt's leading Muslim and Christian clerics backed an army-sponsored
      roadmap on Wednesday which suspended the constitution and called for
      early presidential and parliamentary elections.

      Ahmed al-Tayeb, Grand Sheikh of Al-Azhar, Cairo's ancient seat of Muslim learning, and Pope Tawadros, the head of the Coptic Church, both made brief statements following an announcement by the head of the armed forces that deposed the elected president, Mohamed Mursi of the Muslim Brotherhood.

      Pope Tawadros said the plan offered a political vision and would ensure
      security for all Egyptians, about 10 percent of whom are Christian.
