Losing his voice: Morsi's spokesmen quit office
Two spokesmen for Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi have quit their posts, according to a foreign ministry official, as quoted by AP.
The official said career diplomats Omar Amer and Ihab Fahmy have stepped down after almost five months in office.
The defections are the latest in a slew of high profile resignations among Morsi's staff, including six Cabinet ministers.
Morsi is facing mass protests, unprecedented in scale, calling for his resignation. The Egyptian military on Monday evening gave the President 48 hours to resolve the crisis engulfing the country.
