Egypt 's Ministry of Education has ordered the withdrawal of philosophy books from the nation's secondary schools because they contain quotes from speeches by former president Hosny Mubarak, dpa reported citing state television Wednesday.

The books are to be replaced soon with new ones for the new school year, which started in Egypt on September 17.
