Egyptian court suspends work to protest Morsi move
Egypt's two highest appeals courts suspended their work Wednesday in protest of presidential decrees that gave the country's Islamist leader Mohammed Morsi near absolute powers, state television reported.

 

Judges of the Cassation Court decided in an emergency meeting that they will not return to work until Morsi rescinds his decrees, according to state TV. The country's lower appeals court also decided Wednesday to stop work nationwide. (AP)
