Egypt's army reprises historic political role

Many Egyptians thought days of army rule were behind, but ouster of Mohamed Morsi has put the military back in charge.

    The military has long played an important role in Egyptian politics but the protesters who toppled Hosni Mubarak thought they had ushered in a new era of civilian democracy.

    However, the army is once again dominating the political scene.
