Abigail Hauslohner, Time

On Sunday, Morsy fired Field Marshall Mohamed Hussein Tantawi, the country's defense minister and powerful chief of Egypt's military council, with whom the president has been locked in a power struggle since he took office at the end of June. Perhaps, no more.
TAGGED: Mohamed Morsi, Mohamed Tantawi, Muslim Brotherhood, Egypt
