n Sunday, defying a military decree handed down in June, Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi (pictured) ordered the Islamist-controlled parliament to reconvene, a move that could plunge Egypt into another period of instability. Morsi also called for new parliamentary elections within 60 days of the adoption of a new Egyptian constitution, which isn't likely to be completed until late this year.
