My my my, the Muslim Brotherhood bit off more than it could chew.
Youths, police clash as Egyptian judiciary condemns Morsi
Activists hurl rocks at police near Tahrir Square a day after more than 300 hurt in demonstrations across country; Egypt’s highest judicial authority calls Morsi’s power grab an “unprecedented attack” on the judiciary.
Youths clashed with police in Cairo on Saturday as protests at new powers assumed by President Mohamed Morsi stretched into a second day, confronting Egypt with a crisis that has exposed the split between newly empowered Islamists and their opponents.
A handful of hardcore activists hurling rocks battled riot police in the streets near Tahrir Square, where several thousand protesters massed on Friday to demonstrate against a decree that has rallied opposition ranks against Morsi.
Following a day of violence in Cairo, Alexandria, Port Said and Suez, the smell of teargas hung over the square, the heart of the uprising that swept Hosni Mubarak from power in February 2011.
