EGYPT: Muslim Brotherhood leader says uprising's main goal has been achieved
“I salute the Egyptian people and the martyrs. This is the day of victory for the Egyptian people. The main goal of the revolution has been achieved,” Mohamed el-Katatni, former leader of the Brotherhood's parliamentary bloc, told Reuters.
But injecting a note of caution about the military's role in Egypt's future, Katatni said the Brotherhood awaits the next steps to be taken by the country's Higher Military Council, which took charge of the country's affairs after Mubarak's departure.
