Interim president pays tribute to protesters
CAIRO - It's the first step toward setting up a new leadership in Egypt.
The country's interim president was sworn in today before his fellow judges at the country's Supreme Constitutional Court.
Adly Mansour said afterward that the protests that helped bring about the ouster of President Mohammed Morsi were "an expression of the nation's conscience."
Mansour says he looks forward to elections with what he calls "the genuine and authentic will of the people."
In his comments, there was no sign of outreach to Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood -- which is now the target of a military crackdown. The group's leader has been arrested -- a move that previous Egyptian governments didn't dare to make.
