CAIRO - Five Egyptian military helicopters trailing national flags circled over Cairo on Monday after the armed forces gave politicians 48 hours to resolve a crisis over calls for the resignation of Islamist President Mohamed Morsi.

Anti-Morsi protesters rallying in the central Tahrir Square, focus of the 2011 uprising that overthrew autocratic President Hosni Mubarak, cheered as the choppers flew overhead.

Silhouetted against a sweltering sunset, the helicopters symbolized the army's determination to force feuding politicians to share power.
