• Egyptian military's full statement warning it may act in 48 hours -- Washington Post
Millions of Egyptians are furious with the presidency of Mohamed Morsi. And Egypt's powerful military supports the protests -- giving the President 48 hours to respond to the demonstrators demands. Some kind of military intervention seems inevitable, whether Egyptians like it or not.
The CBC's Derek Stoffel is covering this story in Cairo. That's where we reached him.
Political Activist, Ahmad Shokr
While many protesters are delighted the military is publicly taking a stick to Egyptian politics, it's not as if they don't know the dangers.
Political activist Ahmad Shokr has joined the millions choking the streets to protest the Morsi government. He joined us from Cairo.
Lake Forest College Professor, Ghada Talhami
Our next guest believes Egyptians don't need to be overly fretful of the military involvement in their government. Ghada Talhami is the D. K. Pearsons Professor of Politics emerita at Lake Forest College in Chicago.
We did request interviews with the Muslim Brotherhood, but no-one was available to speak with us.
