Egypt protesters' message to Morsy: Go

Egyptian President Mohamed Morsy was under pressure Tuesday to find a solution to deadly unrest in the streets of Egypt amid word that the military has given him an ultimatum: Strike a deal with the opposition or be pushed aside.

Throughout the day, Egyptians poured into Tahrir Square.

Projected in bright neon green lights on a large government building near the square was a message, in Arabic, for Morsy: Go.

Protesters also chanted that message all day long and much of the night. But Morsy has been largely deaf to those calls.

As the army deadline comes closer and closer, demonstrations are growing, but so too are the bursts of violence.

CNN's Ben Wedeman reports live from Cairo in the video above.
