WORLD NEWS TOMORROW – Egypt’s Islamist-led parliament has reconvened in defiance of orders by the country’s military and Supreme Court. The lower house of parliament met Tuesday, days after President Mohamed Morsi issued a decree reinstating the body.

Egypt’s supreme military council dissolved the parliament last month because of election irregularities in a move upheld by the Supreme Court. The speaker of the lower house, Saad el-Katatni, said lawmakers were meeting to find a way to implement the order.

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton urged Egyptian officials to work together to avoid derailing the country’s transition.
