War & Conflict Breaking News: Egypt Lays Out Timetable for Political Roadmap

Wochit 1:01 mins

Egypt's interim leadership laid out a fast-track timetable to elect a new president and parliament by early next year, in a move that is almost certain to deepen the anger of ousted President Mohammed Morsi's supporters but could ease Western concerns about the future of democracy in the key Arab nation. Turkey reopened an Istanbul park at the heart of last month's demonstrations against Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan Monday ? but protest leaders plan to hold another rally there. Egyptian soldiers and police clashed with Islamists protesting the military's ouster of the president in bloodshed that left at least 51 protesters and three members of the security forces dead, officials and witnesses said, and plunged the divided country deeper into crisis with calls by the Muslim Brotherhood's political party for all-out rebellion against the army.
