Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi under house arrest - Al Hayat TV

CAIRO (KABC) -- Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi is reportedly under house arrest after the military ultimatum expired Wednesday, reports Al Hayat TV.
Morsi's spokesman denied the report, according to ABC News, but word of the house arrest provoked cheers in Tahrir Square.
This comes as Egypt's military moved to tighten its control on key institutions before their afternoon ultimatum expired.
The military stationed officers in the newsroom of state television on the banks of the Nile River in central Cairo. Troops were deployed in news-production areas.
Officers from the army's media department moved inside the newsroom and were monitoring output, though not yet interfering, staffers said, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk about the arrangements.
This move shows the military's preparation for an almost certain push to remove the country's Islamist president when an afternoon ultimatum expires.
Earlier Wednesday, Egyptian leaders met with the army chief. This meeting also signaled the military was taking concrete moves toward implementing its plan to replace Morsi, Egypt's first freely elected leader who came to office a year ago.
The clock is ticking and no one is really sure exactly what will happen when the deadline is reached. It was imposed by Egypt's military Tuesday after massive demonstrations in the nation's capitol and it will be reached at 7 a.m. - 8 a.m. PT.
Under a plan leaked to state media, the military would install a new interim leadership, the Islamist-backed constitution suspended and the Islamist-dominated parliament dissolved.

When will Obama throw away his buddy
Under house arrest?
Can he order take-in food from the local restaurants?
If only it was the Fairy King that was under house arrest.
Some GENERALISSIMO wants the job. Just a guess.
The new generalissimo can gloat that it was "the people's will" AND he can keep an eye on his
prisoner house guest.
At least his old lady is.
When will Obama throw away his buddy
He’s probably on a conference with Valerie Jarret and members of the Muslim Brotherhood White House staff right now.
Who seized dictatorial power after less than 5 months in that elected office.
Some General is better than a terrorist.
I’m glad to see the Egyptian people and military rising up against a tyrannical terrorist government.
Just ask the Egyptian Copts how wonderful Obama’s buddy Morsi has been to them.
And kinda losing.
ya gotta be kidding..
Morsi is discovering that this 2000-Y.O. axiom is still in force worldwide.
It is operative here as well. Hence the frantic efforts to paganize and "gay" the armed services.
LOL. “I am Jihad!!!!” Were I an Egyptian I would not want to go on TV supporting Morsi right about now. It might be exciting at the moment, but once the army cements control there will be special squads “dissapearing” anyone even slightly inconvenient.
“I’m just a bird in a golden cage” singing with crocodile tears..... po’ ooody poody. There is an answer ms. beard. Leave the queer. Course she’s a goner if she tried. What sickness, like bill and hill. Or better the old commie husband wife teams.
We are probably in for a scenario that looks a bit like post-invasion Iraq. Repeated suicide bombings of government and military targets as the MB tries to reassert itself.
Dude has a 1/2 life of maybe ten minutes with his face on miltary controlled TV. even “if” he is/was an imam.
Sounds ugly. I’ll make the popcorn.
Only in Egypt.
