(CNN) — Egypt’s military deposed the country’s first democratically elected president Wednesday night, installing the head of the country’s highest court as an interim leader, the country’s top general announced.

Gen. Abdel-Fatah El-Sisi said the military was fulfilling its “historic responsibility” to protect the country by ousting Mohamed Morsi, the Western-educated Islamist leader elected a year ago. Morsi “did not achieve the goals of the people” and failed to meet demands to share power with opponents who thronged the streets of Cairo and Tahrir Square, El-Sisi said.

The ousting of Morsi brings about some mixed feelings for one local man who moved to the metro just a couple of months ago from Egypt.

Hazem Eltoukhi says he’s sad, fearful for the safety of his family and losing hope for the future of Egypt.
