Wochit 1:05 mins

Just last month, the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood had a lock on Egypt's presidency and parliament.Now, after mass protests backed by the country?s military swept President Mohammed Morsi from power, the organization venerated throughout the Muslim world for its discipline, ministry to the needy and rejection of violence is showing signs of fracturing. Deputy Secretary of State William J. Burns arrived in Cairo at a time of high anti-American sentiment on all sides in the crisis, as he tries to end a standoff. Saying he acted upon the will of the people after the "stumbling" of the former government, Egypt's military chief has defended the ouster of the Islamist president. In his first remarks since announcing the ouster of President Mohammed Morsi on July 3, Gen. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi said the armed forces "acted at the urging of the people."
