On July 3, 2013, anti-President Morsi protesters gathered in Tahrir Square, Cairo under the protection of the Egyptian army to advocate for the president to step down. The Egyptian army ousted Mohammed Morsi at 7:30 pm, Egypt's first democratically-elected leader, from power and suspended the country's constitution. Morsi was taken into military custody and Egypt's Chief Justice Adly Mansour was sworn in, completing a transition of power. Egypt's future is unknown as the country's condition is constantly changing by the power of the people. Protesters celebrated by waving flags, lighting fireworks, and taking pictures with the army patrolling the streets.
