On the 30th of June, exactly one year after the Egyptians voted for Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohammed Morsi to become their first-ever democratically elected president, millions of protesters filled central Cairo and town squares across Egypt demanding his dismissal.

The Defence Minister, General Abdel Fatah al-Sisi, promptly issued Morsi with a 48-hour deadline to heed the protesters' demands or face military intervention.

With the clock to the army's deadline ticking down and the whole country poised to see what would happen next, VICE went to Cairo to find out.
