Egypt's new interim leader

A protester runs past a fire raging during clashes in Giza, Egypt, early Wednesday, July 3, 2013. Egypt's army chief met on Wednesday with his top commanders, hours before the military's deadline to the president and opposition to resolve the nation's political crisis is set to expire, according to a Defense Ministry official. The looming deadline follows a night of deadly clashes in Cairo and elsewhere in the country that left nearly two dozen people dead, most in a single incident near the main Cairo university campus.
