Anti-government protests flare across Egypt

Help

Protesters have spent Friday night in Tahrir Square in the Egyptian capital, Cairo, to show their anger at President Mursi's adoption of sweeping new powers.

More than 100 people have been injured in clashes across Egypt after President Mohammed Mursi passed a decree giving himself almost unchecked power.

However Mr Mursi says he is leading Egypt to "freedom and democracy".
