Clashes  have continued in the early hours of  Monday as unrest continues in Cairo over President Mohamed Mursi's decree granting himself sweeping powers which puts him above legal challenge until parliamentary elections, which are expected to be held in early 2013.Riot police fired teargas canisters to disperse protesters in the area around Tahrir square while protesters continued to throw rocks towards police vehicles.

And hundreds of people are still refusing to budge today after a sit in protest which started on Friday saw protestors set up a tented village in the roundabout in the centre of Tahrir. But this decree is dividing Egypt as Mursi's supporters and opponents are both planning massive demonstrations in central Cairo tomorrow that many fear will lead to more violence.
