The United States expects Egypt's military authorities to fully transfer power to a democratically elected civilian government, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said today. Clinton told reporters:

"There can be no going back on the democratic transition called for by the Egyptian people," declining specific comment on an Egyptian court ruling to dissolve the country's newly-elected Islamist-led parliament.
