Demonstrations continued on Tuesday evening at both the presidential palace and Al-Qobba Palace as protesters persisted in their calls for the removal of President Mohamed Morsi.

At the presidential palace in Heliopolis, the protests reached their third straight day.

Thousands of protesters had arrived at the palace on Monday afternoon, many celebrating the ultimatum presented by the armed forces the day before.

The statement from the army, which set a deadline for Wednesday for the opposition to come to terms with the presidency, was welcomed by the protesters who chanted: “Come down, [Minister of Defence Abdul Fatah] Al-Sisi,” and played patriotic songs while calling for Morsi to leave.
