CAIRO - Egypt's military council, which handed powers to an Islamist president last month, held an emergency meeting on Sunday to discuss a presidential decree ordering the dissolved parliament to reconvene, the state news agency reported.

It said the meeting was headed by Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi, who leads the council that had governed Egypt after Hosni Mubarak's overthrow last year. The council had dissolved the Islamist-led parliament based on a court order this month.

The generals met to "study and discuss the repercussions of President Mohamed Mursi's decision to reconvene parliament," the news agency MENA reported.
