Egypt's Attorney General rescinded his decision to resign from his post on Thursday, reported Al-Jazeera.

Attorney General Talaat Ibrahim, appointed by President Mohamed Mursi, resigned from his post on Monday evening after hundreds of public prosecutors staged a sit-in by his office demanding that he steps down.

Egypt's Justice Minister Ahmed Mekki has said that the acceptance of the Attorney General's resignation is in the hands of the High Judicial Council.

Egypt’s High Judicial Council convened an urgent session on Thursday, refusing however to disclose reasons behind it.
