Protest of Morsi Power Grab Scheduled for Cairo Friday


Demonstrations against Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi are scheduled for Friday in Cairo's Tahrir Square, following Thursday's announcement of extensive power he bestowed upon himself.

Opposition groups called for nationwide protests after a spokesman announced that Morsi will be authorized to take any step necessary to preserve the January 2011 revolution until a new constitution is approved. It was also announced that any such step may not be appealed.
