CAIRO — Almost daily, armed Egyptians angry over poor services storm hospitals, beating up or menacing doctors. Others took over a governor’s office to protest weeks without running water. Fabric workers shut down factories with strikes demanding better conditions.
Lawlessness, economic troubles and public frustration have been growing in Egypt for months under the country’s uncertain leadership. Now, Egypt’s first elected president, Mohammed Morsi, of the Muslim Brotherhood president has taken his first step to forming his own government, but there is deep skepticism he will be able to fix anything amid a power struggle with the military.

This news has been around now like 48 hrs? and there is no definitive report and account. I think we are just ‘waiting’ for real conclusive account … (sort of incredible considering the significance of the subject.)
He [Saad Emara, a leading member of the Brotherhood’s political party] acknowledged Morsi faces deep resistance from security forces that once led the suppression of the Brotherhood under Mubarak. There has already been friction: A decision believed to have been negotiated by Morsi to allow Palestinians freer entry into Egypt was resisted by some in the Interior Ministry.
