After the mass protests demanding the ousting of Egyptian President Morsi on Sunday, the General Al-Sisi of the Army issues ultimatum to Morsi to share power or be removed forcibly. President Morsi has responded by declaring he would rather die than step down. Al-Sisi responded in kind and announced he and his forces are too ready to fight to the death.
Meanwhile, the protests, which are already larger than those that pushed out Mubarak two years ago during the Arab Spring, are getting more violent and the death toll is climbing.
The Army's deadline for Morsi to relinquish power is 4:30pm Wednesday. That's 9:30am Eastern time.
