The Egyptian authorities have postponed their plans to disperse two sit-ins in Cairo by supporters of the country's ousted president Mohammed Morsi, officials say.
A security official in the capital told the BBC, the authorities had hoped the announcement would encourage protesters to leave.
But this has not happened and the number of people at the sites is increasing.
A judge has extended ousted President Morsi's detention by 15 days.
