Two U.S. officials say that Egyptian defense leaders, who ousted President Mohammed Morsi on Wednesday, have assured the U.S. that they are not interested in a long-term rule.

The official says the leaders, in calls with Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, pledged to put a civilian government in place quickly.
