Good evening.

The egyptian president addressed his divided nation and admitted to mistakes and vowed not to resign and said he would be willing to pay his life to protect the legitimacy of his election.

Tonight, he urged egyptians to keep protests peaceful and wants to keep the door open to dialogue.

The death toll in these clashes has now reached over 7100. what happened?

I believe the death toll is around 700 and 10. what should we expect?

More violence and bloodshed?

That is where we do not know.

The egyptian military has been careful to call this -- to not call this a coup.

It is an ultimatum.

They have not said what they will not do.

It is not clear what would happen once the ultimatum clock runs out.

Fears of a civil war are not growing.

At least for the time being, it will not be president morsi.

Thank you.
