Why was there a military coup against Morsi?

The military coup was largely motivated by popular protests and discontent with President Morsi's rule. Many Egyptians accused Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood, the political party he belonged to, of concentrating power, failing to address economic challenges, and infringing on democratic principles.

What happened to President Morsi after the coup?

Following the coup, President Mohamed Morsi was detained by the military and held in custody. He faced multiple trials on various charges, including espionage and incitement to violence. He died on June 17, 2019, during a court session.

What happened to the Muslim Brotherhood after the coup?

The military coup led to a significant shift in Egypt's political landscape. The Muslim Brotherhood, which had been the ruling party, was designated as a terrorist organization, and its activities were heavily restricted. The coup also paved the way for Abdel Fattah el-Sisi to assume power as the President of Egypt, ushering in a period of political stability but also increased authoritarianism.

HAVANA — It was Summer, 2015. Nine months later, our daughter would be born. It wasn't planned, but I was sure I wouldn't end my first pregnancy. I was 22 years old, had a degree, my dream job and my own house — something unthinkable at that age in Cuba — plus a three-year relationship, and the summer heat.

I remember those months as the most fun, crazy and experimental of my pre-motherhood life. It was the time of my first kiss with a girl, and our first threesome.

Every weekend, we went to the Cuban art factory and ended up at the CornerCafé until 7:00 a.m. That September morning, we were very drunk, and in that second-floor room of my house, it was unbearably hot. The sex was otherworldly. A few days later, the symptoms began.

She arrived when and how she wished. That's how rebellious she is.
