Election Violence in Egypt Kills 8
Afghanistan Bombing kills 2
Election violence claimed at least 8 lives in Egypt on Wednesday, and wounded dozens. The Muslim Brotherhood has vastly increased its representation in parliament, giving it them clout to further Islamize the law in Egypt. There will be over 80 members of parliament from the Muslim Brotherhood, from all accounts. (In the last parliament, the MB had only 17). The State Department had warned Bush that this sort of outcome was plausible if he pushed Mubarak to modernize.
Guerrillas in Afghanistan are starting to use Iraq-style tactics. An attack on Wednesday killed two.
