"parliament dissolution is binding, court rules
Egyptian President Mohammed Mursi's order to reconvene parliament has been rejected by the country's highest court, which says its ruling dissolving the assembly is binding.
Following President Mursi's decree, the speaker of the dissolved house had called for MPs to meet on Tuesday.
Army units outside parliament were withdrawn, allowing MPs to enter.
Mr Mursi, whose Muslim Brotherhood won most seats, says the chamber should function until a new election is held.
But Egypt's Supreme Constitutional Court, meeting on Monday, said that all its rulings and decisions were "final and not subject to appeal".
