Thousands celebrate Egyptian military's decision to overthrow Mohamed Morsy

(WXYZ) - Cairo, Egypt - We're continuing to follow the latest developments on the unrest in Egypt.

Yesterday, the Egyptian military overthrew the country's first democratically-elected leader, Mohamed Morsy.

Thousands of people gathered in Tahrir Square, celebrating the military's job of forcing Morsy out of power.
