Crisis in Egypt

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

The crisis in Egypt continues. A new cabinet was sworn-in today only 12 days after the democratically elected president was removed by the military.

One of those sworn in was the head of Egypt's armed forces. He is now also the interim first deputy prime minister. The new cabinet is more diverse than the government of ousted Mohammed Morsi -- with posts going to Christians and women. Morsi's party, The Muslim Brotherhood, is refusing to recognize the interim government. It is also demanding the reinstatement of Morsi -- who is being held by the army at an undisclosed location.

UVM political science professor Gregory Gause discusses the interim government and what the change means for American-Egyptian relations.
