June 30 - Thousands rejoice in Tahrir Square after Egypt's first democratically elected president, Mohamed Mursi, is officially sworn in. Deborah Lutterbeck reports.
Celebrations in Tahrir Square as Egypt's first freely elected president Mohamed Mursi takes office. Supporters feel like he is one of them. (SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) DEMONSTRATOR, MORTADA HASSAN, SAYING: "President Mursi's speech was a speech delivered from an Egyptian citizen. It felt as if I was sitting before an Egyptian citizen who knows of the struggles of the people, a son of Egypt who we can relate to. Unlike before, when we heard speeches by figures who did not understand the circumstances of the people." As the celebrations go on, Egypt remains in political limbo, without a constitution, a lower house of parliament or any clarity about the role of the military establishment.
