The rise and rapid fall of Egypt's Mohamed Morsy

Watch this video
Mohamed Morsy,Egypt's first democratically elected president, has been ousted from office just over a year into his presidency.
Deposed by the military and reportedly held under house arrest, Morsy's fall from power has been nothing if not rapid.
Egypt's powerful military stepped in July 3, hours after a deadline the generals had set for Morsy to order reforms expired.
The military's intervention followed days of opposition protests, during which hundreds of thousands of people massed in Cairo's Tahrir Square and elsewhere to demand that he step down and call fresh presidential elections, or face a campaign of civil disobedience.
