to bring you all news of what’s going on in Egypt.
There were millions of people on the streets in Egypt the other day, most demanding President Morsi’s resignation and now this:
CAIRO — Egypt’s powerful military warned on Monday it will intervene if the Islamist president doesn’t “meet the people’s demands,” giving him and his opponents two days to reach an agreement, as thousands of protesters massed for a second day calling on Mohammed Morsi to step down.
The 48-hour ultimatum, said the military, was a “last chance.”
The military’s statement, read on state television, puts enormous pressure on Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood. So far, the president has vowed he will remain in his position, but the opposition and crowds in the street – who numbered in the millions nationwide on Sunday – have made clear they will accept nothing less than his departure and a transition to early presidential elections.
Any thoughts? Or just lots of fears? Here’s hoping for the best.
