Egypt’s interim leader dissolves Shura Council

Al Arabiya
The Egyptian interim head of state, Adly Mansour, issued a decree on Friday dissolving the upper house of parliament, state TV reported on Friday.
The Shura Council – upper house of parliament – remained active following the dismantling of the lower house by the army-led authorities before ousted Islamist President Mohammed Mursi was elected in 2012.
It added that he appointed Mohammed Ahmed Farid al-Tohami as the new head of intelligence, replacing Mohammed Raafat Shehata – appointed by Mursi.
Mansour was appointed following the army’s decision to oust the Islamist president.
