Is Egyptian Democracy Being Killed in Its Cradle?

Hosted by

On the eve of this weekend's presidential run-off election, Egyptian voters are facing what some call a "back-door coup." Today, a court packed with sympathizers of Hosni Mubarak dissolved the parliament elected after his overthrow and the military government has declared martial law. As the former President is rumored to be on his deathbed, is his former regime as alive as ever? We update today's developments and the possible consequences in Egypt and elsewhere in the Muslim world.
