Morsi: Army Never Gave Me Ultimatum

This is confusing. 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. Morsi said the Army’s statement that it would intervene if the protests continued “may cause confusion in the complex national scene,” and he denied that this statement amounted to a coup. Meanwhile, Egypt’s Foreign Minister Mohamed Kamel Amr resigned on Tuesday, becoming the fifth foreign ministers to quit due to the ongoing crisis.

Egyptian protestors have been using Vine to spread their message.
