    Egyptian Army Chief Meets with Opposition

    Supporters of Egypt's ousted President Mohammed Morsi chant slogans against Egyptian Defense Minister Gen. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi outside Rabaah al-Adawiya mosque, where supporters of Egypt's ousted President Mohammed Morsi have installed a camp and hold daily rallies at Nasr City, in Cairo, Egypt, Friday, Aug. 2, 2013. Authorities outlined plans Friday to break up two sit-ins by supporters of deposed President Mohammed Morsi, saying they would set up a cordon around the protest sites, and riot police used tear gas to disperse demonstrators threatening a TV complex. Morsi backers also showed their defiance by briefly setting up a third camp near the airport, but later folded their tents and left. Arabic on posters read, "Peaceful."

    As the political crisis in Egypt continues, the new government continues to work at resolving it. On Saturday night, Army chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi met with several leaders of Islamist movements in order to push along the political process. Although the collection of movements includes the powerful Muslim Brotherhood, no Brotherhood representative was at the meeting. It is suspected that the group is waiting to be granted concessions before meeting with officials. Islamist groups have held protests since Islamist President Mohamed Morsi was ousted in early July.
