Egypt army, opposition meeting over, statement soon: army

CAIRO (Reuters) - A meeting between the head of the Egyptian armed forces, liberal opposition leaders and senior Muslim and Christian clerics, has ended and a statement will be issued within the hour, the armed forces said in a statement on Facebook on Wednesday.

Earlier, state news agency MENA said they would jointly announce a new roadmap for a short period of transitional rule to be followed by presidential and parliamentary elections.
