Impending S**tstorm of the Day: Egyptians Protest President Mohamed Morsi's Power Grab

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.
