Military Coup Looming in Egypt?

Egypt's top generals "summoned civilian political leaders to an emergency meeting Wednesday, conferring with them past the 48-hour deadline they had set for President Mohamed Morsi to leave power, as signs pointed further to an impending military takeover," the New York Times reports.

"The military's intelligence service placed a travel ban on President Morsi and senior Islamist aides including the Muslim Brotherhood's Supreme Guide Mohamed Badie, and his influential deputy, Khairat el-Shater... People close to the president said at around the same time that talks with the generals continued but looked increasingly futile. A decisive move was expected within hours, these people said, although the president and his advisers remained at liberty."
