Egypt court dissolves parliament

Egypt’s supreme court ruled yesterday to dissolve the Islamist-led parliament, plunging a troubled transition to democracy into turmoil just two days before an election to replace ousted leader Hosni Mubarak. Islamists who gained most from Mubarak’s overthrow decried what they called a coup by an army-led establishment still full of Mubarak-era officials. They said the street movement that spurred last year's uprising would not let it pass.
