Urgent talks underway in Egypt
Egypt’s future remains unclear as President Mohamed Morsi clings to power.
CAIRO - Top Egyptian military commanders have begun urgent talks after President Mohamed Morsi on Wednesday rejected a deadline to reach consensus with opponents.
The army's ultimatum to Morsi will run out over the next few hours.
The military threatened to move in if a resolution is not reached.
Egyptians are holding their breath as today is a momentous and dangerous day for their country.
Protesters in Tahrir Square told Eyewitness News they trust the army and believe it does not want to run the country.
There is a huge amount of uncertainty and many people fear there will be more violence.
Morsi came into power in 2012 after Hosni Mubarak stepped down following mass protests against his rule.
A year later, Egyptians want the freely elected leader to step down as they believe he has failed to address unemployment.
Several of his ministers have already quit.
