Egypt’s Mursi is given ultimatum

City A.M. Reporter
EGYPT’S armed forces handed Islamist President Mohamed Mursi a virtual ultimatum to share power yesterday, giving politicians 48 hours to compromise or have the army impose itself on the country. A military statement broadcast on state television declared the nation was in danger after millions of Egyptians took to the streets on Sunday to demand Mursi quit, as the headquarters of the ruling Muslim Brotherhood were ransacked.
