Egypt's armed forces have given the country's politicians 48 hours to start working together or face an army intervention. The warning came on the heels of widespread protests in Egypt demanding that Islamist President Mohammed Morsi resign.
Egypt this week moved to block access to the country from the Gaza Strip in the wake of an assault on an Egyptian border station over the weekend. The attackers attempted to flee into Israel but were halted by the Israeli Air Force.
Egypt had a bloody political clash last week as opponents of the Muslim Brotherhood charged President Mohammed Morsi with attempting to overstep limits on his political power. Now, Egyptians are growing disillusioned with the recently elected Morsi.
