Visits to Egypt's ousted president, who is being held in a remote desert prison, will no longer be allowed, the interior ministry said.

Ministry spokesman Col Gamal Mokhtar said that Mohammed Morsi had delivered four messages "inciting violence" against the interim government during a first meeting with his lawyers on November 13.

Mr Morsi made a statement through his lawyers saying Egypt will see no stability unless he returns to power.

He was overthrown by the military on July 3 after millions demonstrated calling on him to leave office.

One of Mr Morsi's sons, Osama, posted on his official Facebook page that his most recent request to visit his father was turned down.

He said Mr Morsi was moved from his place of detention to another undisclosed location.
