VOICE-OVER SCRIPT:

WITH MILLIONS TAKING TO THE STREETS PROTESTING AGAINST THE NATION'S ISLAMIST PRESIDENT MOHAMMED MORSI, EGYPT'S MILITARY TOOK TO THE AIRWAVES ...

(SOT: Army chief Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi)

''We will freeze the constitution temporarily, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Constitutional Court will be sworn in in front of the General Assembly of the Court."

CHEERS ERUPTED AMONG MILLIONS OF PROTESTERS WHO WERE DEMANDING MORSI'S OUSTER.

IT WAS THE FOURTH DAY OF THE BIGGEST ANTI-GOVERNMENT RALLIES EVER SEEN in the country, SURPASSING EVEN THOSE AGAINST MORSI'S PREDECESSOR, HOSNI MUBARAK.

(Nats)

THE MILITARY'S ACTIONS _ REPLACING MORSI WITH THE CHIEF JUSTICE OF THE SUPREME CONSTITUTIONAL COURT, CALLING FOR EARLY ELECTIONS AND SUSPENDING THE ISLAMIST-BACKED CONSTITUTION _ WERE IMMEDIATELY CALLED A 'FULL COUP' BY MORSI.

(SOT: Mirette Mabrouk, Atlantic Council)

"This came about because the Army had hoped, and other forces in the opposition had hoped that the government would be more inclusive, but after the speech given by the President yesterday, they thought that the President and the government were not paying enough attention to popular demand."

THE SITUATION IN THE STREETS IS FAR FROM CLEAR.

MORSI'S ISLAMIST SUPPORTERS HAVE VOWED TO RESIST WHAT THEY CALL A COUP AGAINST DEMOCRACY, AND HAVE ALSO TAKEN TO THE STREETS BY THE TENS OF THOUSANDS.

(SOT: Mirette Mabrouk, Atlantic Council)

"It is a very, very complicated situation. He was, is, democratically elected, however he does seem to have broken a compact, if you will, with the people of Egypt and they want new elections."

FOR THE SECOND TIME IN TWO-AND-A-HALF YEARS OF POLITICAL UPHEAVAL, THE POWERFUL ARMY APPEARS TO BE IN CONTROL.

BUT THIS TIME, OUSTING EGYPT'S FIRST DEMOCRATICALLY ELECTED PRESIDENT - MAKING THE MOVE POTENTIALLY EXPLOSIVE.

THE U. S. IS APPEALING FOR CALM.

(SOT: Jen Psaki, US State Department spokeswoman)

"We are not taking sides in this. This is for the Egyptian people, and all sides, to work through together and we are hopeful that they can come to a political resolution."

AT LEAST 39 PEOPLE HAVE BEEN KILLED IN CLASHES SINCE SUNDAY, RAISING FEARS OF FURTHER BLOODSHED.
