Cairo, (Agencies): The Egyptian military on Tuesday constituted a panel of legal experts, including a member of the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood, to suggest amendments to the Mubarak-era constitution while firing two top security officials for their handling of the anti-regime protests.

The eight-member committee that has been entrusted with the task of studying the constitutional reform would be headed by Tareq al-Bishry, a retired judge known for his independent views and support for a free judiciary during the reign of Hosni Mubarak.

The Supreme Military Council has vowed to rewrite the constitution within 10-days and submit it to a public referendum within two months time.

The inclusion of a former lawmaker of the largest opposition group Muslim Brotherhood, Sobhi Saleh, in the panel is a significant message by the new military leadership that has chosen to begin the political reform process from scratch.

Meanwhile, a Muslim Brotherhood leader said that the group will apply to become an official party in the near future once the time is ripe.

The step to set up a panel comes two days after a parliament packed with Mubarak loyalists was dissolved and the constitution suspended in line with the demands of the protesters.

The constitution, that now stands suspended, had provisions that helped Mubarak and his allies in power, and a major demand of the protesters was the scrapping of such guarantees and putting term limits for presidential tenure.

As Egypt took baby-steps towards establishing a democracy, political unrest mounted in other Arab nations, with Egypt-inspired rallies witnessed in Algeria, Bahrain, Yemen and Iran.

Bahrain another person was killed when security forces used force on mourners gathered for a funeral procession for a man killed in an earlier protest.

The Egyptian military also sacked two top security officials for their role in decisions to open fire on anti-Mubarak protesters during the 18-day uprising.

The caretaker government fired the director of public security at Egypt's interior ministry, Adly Fayed, and Cairo's security chief, Ismail El Shaer, Al Jazeera reported.

The dismissals came as the military tries to calm public anger against the state's security forces that were used by Mubarak to stifle dissent.
