Egyptian president poised to grant military broader police powers

“Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi appeared to be preparing Saturday to grant the military powers to ‘protect vital institutions’ and arrest people deemed state security threats until a new constitution is approved and parliamentary are elections held, according to a report Saturday in the state-run newspaper Al-Ahram. The move was approved by Morsi’s cabinet, the newspaper said, and would require Morsi to issue a constitutional declaration for it to take effect.”
