Unrest in Egypt continous thursday as the country's election authority delayed releasing the results from this weekend's presidential run-off vote. Officials first planned to release the results today, but overnight it was announced the tally was delayed for an unspecified reason. The Muslim Brotherhood is now threatening to take to the streets in protest.

The once banned group says their candidate won the close election. However that is being disputed by his competitor. Adding to the unease, the Egyptian military's soft coup. Soon after the Muslim Brotherhood announced victory the caretaker military government disbanded parliament and stripped the president of several powers.
