Hosted by

167x120 image for tp120618muslim_brotherhood_wMohammed Morsi, of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood, is claiming victory in this weekend's presidential runoff against Hosni Mubarak's former prime minister, Ahmed Shafik. But the military's Supreme Council has all but eliminated the new president's authority before he ever takes office. Is dictatorship being restored or is Egypt groping toward a fragile balance of political power? We get an update from Cairo, including Tahrir Square, and Washington.
