CAIRO (Reuters) - The general command of the Egyptian armed forces is currently holding a crisis meeting, a military source told Reuters on Wednesday.

The meeting was being held hours before the expiry of a deadline set by the army for rival politicians to find a solution to the country's political crisis.
