UPDATE: 3:10 PM EST
According to AP, Egypt’s military chief says president is replaced by chief justice of constitutional court.
Which means the peole have succeded in overthrowing President Morsi. Protestors in Tahrir Square are now celebrating.
More to come.
Never underestimate the power of the people.
The people of Egypt have been protesting in Tahrir Square for days, as Anti-Brotherhood protestors took to the streets in outrage over a stagnant economy and the religiosity of the Islamist party.
The Army gave President Morsi (Egypt’s first democratically elected president) a 48-hour window in which to meet popular demands or step down. President Morsi let that deadline come and go…and now military coup is on the horizon.
We stand with our brothers and sisters in Egypt at this moment. Check out the craziest, most powerful images from Tahrir Square below:
