CAIRO - Egypt's interim president is praising the mass protests demanding the ouster of Mohammed Morsi, saying they've united Egyptians.

President Adly Mansour made the remarks at his swearing-in ceremony today at the Supreme Constitutional Court. Mansour, who was the court's chief justice, replaces Morsi, the Islamist leader who was overthrown by the military on Wednesday after just one year in office.

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.

Morsi is under house arrest at an undisclosed location.
