Opinions still divided in Egypt

Egypt's new military authorities say they are dissolving parliament and suspending the constitution.

In a statement on state TV, the higher military council said it would stay in power six months, or until elections.

Egypt's current parliament is dominated by supporters of President Hosni Mubarak, who was ousted on Friday after 18 days of mass protests.

In Cairo's Tahrir Square, some protesters showed their anger towards the police. Others voiced their continuing dissatisfaction with Egypt's power structure.
