Egypt: Ash Atalla on army deposing Mohammed Morsi

Deposing the Egyptian president was "not such a big surprise," but after only one year in power he could not be blamed for all the country's problems, said Ash Atalla.

The Egyptian-born TV producer - of The Office and The IT Crowd - said food was going up in price, buildings were crumbling and there was a feeling of lawlessness, while ex-president Morsi had "betrayed the people's needs and followed too narrow an agenda".

Mr Atalla gave his take on the dramatic developments in his homeland.
