Egypt's Islamists to lead anti-military protest

Egypt's ruling military council pledged Monday to honor its promise to hand over power to the newly elected president by the end of this month, hours after Islamist candidate Mohammed Morsi claimed victory in the first free presidential vote since the ouster of authoritarian leader Hosni Mubarak 16 months ago.

Campaign spokesmen for Mohammed Morsi say the protest is planned at Cairo's Tahrir Square, birthplace of the uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak's regime 16 months ago. The protest is also to denounce a court ruling that dissolved parliament, where the Brotherhood dominated with just under half the seats.
One of the main liberal youth groups behind the uprising, April 6, said it was taking part in the protest.
