Despite mass street demonstrations by millions of his opponents, Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi, the country's first freely elected leader, has vowed he will not leave office. Egypt's military has moved to tighten its control of key institutions, sending troops backed with armored vehicles to the heart of Cairo and slapping a travel ban on Morsi and top allies in preparation for an almost certain push to remove the Islamist president.
At least 39 people have died since the protests began on Sunday.
Here's a gallery of images from the past 24 hours of protests in Egypt, which will be updated throughout the day.
