CAIRO (Reuters) - Egyptian troops with armored vehicles have secured the central Cairo studios of state television on Wednesday, security sources said.

As a deadline approaches when the army high command is expected to step in and reorder Egypt's political institutions, the sources said staff not involved in working on live broadcasts had left the building.
