CAIRO (AP) — Disagreement between secular and liberal factions and ultraconservative Islamists within Egypt’s new leadership is stalling the formation of a new government after the military’s ouster of President Mohammed Morsi.
At the same time, the streets are again filled with both supporters and opponents of the ousted leader. The military has deployed troops in Cairo and other cities amid fears of renewed violence.
The Muslim Brotherhood is pushing ahead with its campaign of protests aimed at forcing Morsi’s reinstatement, bringing out large crowds in new rallies. Its officials vow the group will not be “terrorized” by arrests of their leaders and the shutdown of their media outlets.
The Brotherhood’s opponents have organized large rallies in Tahrir (tah-HREER’) Square and other squares in Cairo and several cities to defend against an Islamist counter-push. Military warplanes swooped over the crowd filling Tahrir, drawing a heart shape and an Egyptian flag in the sky with colored smoke.
Two days ago, clashes between the rival camps left at least 36 dead and more than 1,000 injured nationwide.
