Politics Breaking News: Egyptian Opposition Leader Named Interim Prime Minister as Pro-Morsi Demonstrators Mass for Protests

Wochit

Egypt's National Salvation Front announced the appointment of an interim prime minister Saturday to run the country during a transition period in the wake of President Mohammed Morsi's sudden ouster.

Security forces boosted positions near a protest camp by supporters of ousted leader Mohammed Morsi as authorities Saturday plotted their next moves after violence claimed at least 36 lives across the country and deepened the battle lines in the divided nation.

The abrupt end of Egypt's first Islamist government was the culmination of months of escalating tensions and ultimately futile American efforts to broker a solution to keep President Mohamed Morsi in office.
