VIDEO: Tahrir protesters welcome army statement, with reservations


An anti-government sit-in in Tahrir Square erupted in cheers when military helicopters flew overhead and protesters welcomed Monday's armed forces statement giving President Morsi 48 hours to resolve differences with the opposition or face an army-imposed 'roadmap' for Egypt's political future.

Chants of 'The people and army are one hand' are heard frequently, amid other chants against President Morsi. Protesters want the military to intervene to support their demands, but ultimately want civilian rule.
