Egypt's military issues a 48-hour ultimatum

Supporters of Egypt's Islamist President Mohammed Morsi attend a rally in Nasser City, in Cairo, Egypt, Egypt, Monday, July 1, 2013. 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 in what it called a last chance. Hundreds of thousands of protesters massed for a second day calling on Mohammed Morsi to step down.
