    Egypt's military rulers dissolve parliament - Yahoo! News
    By SARAH EL DEEB/MAGGIE MICHAEL, Associated Press – 7 mins ago

    Egypt's military rulers took sweeping action to Dismantle the autocratic legacy of former President Hosni Mubarak on Sunday, dissolving parliament, suspending the constitution and promising elections in moves cautiously welcomed by pro-democracy protesters.

    They also Met with representatives of the broad-based Youth movement that brought down the government after an 18-day uprising that transfixed the world.

    The caretaker government, backed by the military, said restoring security was a top priority even as labor unrest reflected one of the many challenges of steering the Arab world's biggest nation toward stability and democracy.

    On Sunday, prominent activist Wael Ghonim posted on a Facebook page he manages notes from a meeting between members of the military council and youth representatives, which he described as encouraging.

    The military defended the caretaker government, stocked with Mubarak loyalists, as necessary for now in the interests of stability but pledged to soon change it, said Ghonim and another protester, Amr Salama, in the statement.
