Egypt's highest court declared the parliament invalid Thursday, and the country's interim military rulers promptly declared full legislative authority, triggering fresh chaos and confusion about the country's leadership.

The ruling means that parliament must be dissolved, state TV reported. Parliament has been in session for just over four months. It is dominated by Islamists, a group long viewed with suspicion by the military.
