Egypt's justice minister sees compromise deal with Morsi
Egypt's justice minister said on Monday he believed President Mohammed Morsi would agree with the country's highest judicial authority on its proposal that would limit the scope of a presidential decree to expand Morsi's powers.

 

The statement issued by the Supreme Judicial Council on Sunday night said Morsi's decree should apply only to "sovereign matters", suggesting it did not reject outright the declaration, which has triggered violent street protests. The council meets Morsi later on Monday. (Reuters)
