Egypt plans to lift a three-month state of emergency and curfew, two days earlier than expected, two government sources and a security source said. Egypt's army-backed authorities announced the nightly curfew on August 14, when security forces forcibly ended the two main sit-ins by supporters of ousted Islamist President Mohamed Mursi in Cairo, prompting waves of violence in which hundreds of people have been killed.
