CAIRO (AP) - A top adviser to Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi says the country is seeing a military coup.

 

   The military today moved to tighten its control of key institutions. It did so with the passing of a deadline it had set for Morsi to meet the demands of protesters calling for him to leave office. Just before the deadline arrived, Morsi vowed again not to step down. And he criticized the military for "taking only one side."

 

   Troops backed with armored vehicles have been sent to the heart of Cairo. Meanwhile, a travel ban has been imposed on Morsi and his top allies, ahead of an almost certain push to remove the Islamist president.

 

   Soon after the deadline passed, a military helicopter circled over the anti-Morsi crowds in Cairo's central Tahrir square -- which had become a sea of furiously waving Egyptian flags. The crowd chanted for Morsi to "leave." After nightfall, fireworks went off, and green lasers flashed over the crowd.

 

   In the main squares of cities nationwide, millions of people turned out, again demanding Morsi's removal. It's the fourth day of the biggest anti-government rallies Egypt has seen -- even bigger than in the uprising that ousted his predecessor, Hosni Mubarak.

   Earlier today, the head of the army met with a leading reform advocate, Mohammed ElBaradei, along with Egypt's top Muslim cleric and others. A spokesman for an opposition group says they met to discuss a political road map.
