Ad Feedback

Egypt's military took sweeping action over the weekend trying to get the country moving forward after President Hosni Mubarak stepped down on Friday.

The ruling military council dissolved parliament, suspended the constitution and promised new elections will take place this fall. It also met with representatives of the protestors to hear their concerns.

Clifton Clarke of Regent University discussed the source of the protests, and how they can spread to other countries on the Feb. 14 edition of CBN News Channel's Morning News.

The council called on the Arab nation to return to work to restore the country's economy after the 18 days of protests that resulted in thousands of foreign tourists fleeing the country in rushed evacuation flights.

Egypt's military leaders also told protestors to go back to work in order to help restore the struggling economy.

Meanwhile, thousands of state employees protested in Cairo on Monday, demanding better pay and work conditions.
