CAIRO (AP) — The supreme justice of Egypt's Supreme Constitutional Court has been sworn in as the nation's interim president, replacing the Islamist Mohammed Morsi who was ousted by the military.

   Adly Mansour was sworn in Thursday at the Constitutional Court in a ceremony broadcast live on state television.

   According to military decree, Mansour will serve as Egypt's interim leader until a new president is elected. A date for that vote has yet to be set.

   Manosur's assumption of office comes a day after the military deposed Morsi, who took office a year ago as Egypt's first democratically elected president.

   The military moved to oust Morsi after millions of Egyptians took to the streets this week to demand his resignation.

   Morsi is under house arrest at an undisclosed location.

   SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Illinois has suspended non-emergency roadwork to help keep traffic moving over the July Fourth holiday weekend, the most heavily traveled summer holiday.

   The Illinois Department of Transportation says the halt to construction began Wednesday afternoon and will continue through Sunday.

   Thousands of motorists are expected to travel on state roadways during the holiday period.

   Transportation Secretary Ann Schneider says the construction freeze will also improve safety.

   Motorists planning their trips will be able to see a list of construction-related lane closures on the department's website.

   It is also reminding drivers that work zone speed limits remain in effect even when workers are not present.

   JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Governor Jay Nixon is requesting a federal major disaster declaration for severe storms that struck Missouri from May 29th to June 10th.

   The storms included one that spawned a tornado in the St. Louis area and others that caused widespread flooding.

   Nixon's request Wednesday is for public assistance to 30 counties statewide from Barton County on the border with Kansas to St. Louis County. The governor also is requesting individual assistance for Callaway, Lincoln, Montgomery, Osage, Pike, St. Charles and St. Louis counties.

   Public assistance allows local officials to seek aid for response and recovery efforts. Individual assistance allows households to seek federal aid for uninsured losses.
