War & Conflict Breaking News: Egypt: Islamist Lawmakers Demand Morsi's Return

by Wochit 0:59 mins

Islamist lawmakers in Egypt's disbanded upper-house of parliament demanded the army reinstate ousted President Mohammed Morsi, and called on other legislatures around the world not to recognize the country's new military-backed leadership. Military attack helicopters rattle over the impoverished desert towns of northern Sinai and the sound of gunfire erupts nightly, raising fears among residents of a looming confrontation between Egypt's military and Islamic militants who have intensified attacks since the ouster of President Mohammed Morsi. Al-Qaida-linked gunmen killed a rebel commander in a coastal province in northwestern Syria, a sign of increased tensions and infighting among opposition groups battling the Damascus regime.
