As many as 200,000 Egyptians assembled in Cairo's Tahrir Square and other major cities across the country to protest against Islamist President Mohamed Morsi's self-issued edict that grants him sweeping powers, including what his critics say is immunity of his office and his Muslim Brotherhood-controlled assembly from judicial oversight. Since President Morsi's declaration of the decree last Thursday, a 15-year-old member of the Muslim Brotherhood has been killed, more than 500 people injured and a dozen of his supporters' offices ransacked or set ablaze.
