The crowds returned to Cairo’s Tahrir Square on Monday evening, most delighted that the army appeared to be backing them.
The Generals have given the Egyptian government a 48 hour deadline to ‘listen to the will of the people’ or have the army impose its own ‘roadmap.’
Meanwhile, President Mursi has met with the head of Egypt’s armed forces, who is also the defence minister, to talk about the situation in the country.
Mursi is furious at the ultimatum and says he believes the army wouldn’t dare to attempt a coup.
Pressure is mounting on the government, with five ministers resigning in sympathy with the protests.
Earlier army helicopters flew above the crowds, trailing national flags, to much applause from the thousands gathered below.
Elsewhere, security forces arrested 15 armed bodyguards who worked for a senior member of the Muslim Brotherhood.
They are accused of unlawful possession of firearms after activists were shot while attacking the Brotherhood’ s headquarters. Eight people were killed and more than a dozen injured.
The Muslim Brotherhood say police failed to protect the building.
