Egypt’s military gave Islamic President Mohamed Morsi and opposition politicians an ultimatum by insisting that they come up with an agreement on the country’s future within 48 hours. The military declared that the nation was in danger over state television, as protests continued.

NBC News reported that at least 16 people have been killed since protests erupted against President Morsi this past week.

Tens of thousands have taken to the streets in mass demonstrations and civil unrest has led to the ransacking of Muslim Brotherhood headquarters in Cairo.
