Cairo is bracing for a day of protests following thursday's decision by the country's supreme court to dissolve parliament. Judges appointed by deposed President Hosni Mubarak dissolved the Islamist-dominated parliament and ruled that his former prime minister can run in this weekend's presidential runoff.

The politically charged rulings dealt a heavy blow to the fundamentalist Islamic Brotherhood, and the group vowed to rally against the decision. Despite the ruling this weekend's presidential run-off election will take place, there's no word on when a new parliamentary election will take place.
