Egypt's armed forces said on Monday that its general command will "deliver a televised statement to the Egyptian people shortly."

The announcement by armed forces spokesman Colonel Ahmed Aly came after millions took to the streets on Sunday to demand the ouster of Islamist President Mohamed Morsi and as calls for army intervention to resolve the crisis multiplied.
