Egypt Muslim Brotherhood to lead anti-military protest
The campaign of an Islamist who claimed victory in Egypt's presidential runoff says the Muslim Brotherhood and other political groups plan a mass demonstration later Tuesday to protest a military declaration seeking to curtail the powers of the next president.
Campaign spokesmen for Mohammed Morsi say the protest is planned at Cairo's Tahrir Square, birthplace of the uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak's regime 16 months ago. The protest is also to denounce a court ruling that dissolved parliament, where the Brotherhood dominated with just under half the seats.
One of the main liberal youth groups behind the uprising, April 6, said it was taking part in the protest.
