Egyptian security forces on Wednesday pulled the plug on a Muslim Brotherhood television station after the army announced the overthrow of Mohamed Morsi, an aide to the Islamist president told AFP.

The source added that workers with Al-Jazeera's Egypt affiliate, Al-Jazeera Mubashir, were also arrested after the channel aired a defiant speech by Morsi.
