Protests outside the Egyptian parliament in Cairo. Many are supporters of President Mohamed Mursi - who angered the Egyptian military by reversing its decision to dissolve the assembly. SOUNDBITE: Protester Mahmoud Bayoumi Heikal saying (Arabic): "Thirty million Egyptians elected this parliament. Thirteen million elected the president. I want to say that all of us as judges, consultants, the Ministry of the Interior, the military, the people, the poor, orphans, navy and everyone else are all in the same boat. If this ship survives, we all survive; and if it sinks, we all sink." The parliament, which was elected in November, is dominated by members of the Muslim Brotherhood. Traveling In Vietnam, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton weighed in. SOUNDBITE: United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton saying: "We strongly urge dialogue and a concerted effort on the part of all to try to deal with the problems that are understandable, but have to be resolved in order to avoid any kind of difficulties that could derail the transition that is going on."
