Protestors once again have massed in Egypt’s Tahrir Square and around the country in opposition to their ruling leader. Yesterday a crowd of more than 200,000 gathered in growing opposition to President Mohamed Morsi’s decree last Friday that granted him sweeping constitutional powers. Tahrir Square became the epicenter of the protests in early 2011 that led to the resignation of former president Hosni Mubarak. — Lloyd Young ( 28 photos total)

Thousands took to the streets across Egypt to protest a decision by President Mohamed Morsi to grant himself sweeping powers. Protesters in Cairo converged on Tahrir Square where a sit-in began on 23 Nov. after the Islamist leader signed a decree making all his decisions and laws immune from legal challenge.
