Egyptian Court: Upper House of Parliament is Not Legal

Egypt's Supreme Constitutional Court ruled, Sunday, that the upper house of the country's parliament - with its Muslim Brotherhood majority - was elected illegally. The court ordered the house to be dispersed.

Since the fall of ousted president Hosni Mubarak, there has been a struggle between his supporters and the Muslim Brotherhood, which controls the parliament and the presidency.
