Clashes between police and protesting youths after Morsi stuck by his controversial decree

People carry a giant Egyptian national flag as tens of thousands take part in a mass rally against a decree by President Mohamed Morsi granting himself broad powers on November 27, 2012 in Cairo. Clashes between police and protesting youths erupted near Cairo’s Tahrir Square, ahead of the demonstration. The planned demonstrations come a day after Morsi stuck by his controversial decree in a meeting with judges that was aimed at defusing the worst political crisis since his election in June.
