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.

Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi said on Tuesday that the Army never consulted him before giving a 48-hour ultimatum for him to give up power, and he said he would stick to his “national reconciliation” plan.

Meanwhile, Egypt’s Foreign Minister Mohamed Kamel Amr resigned on Tuesday, becoming the fifth foreign ministers to quit due to the ongoing crisis.
