Thousands support Egypt president in rival rally
Thousands of people waving Egyptian flags and hoisting large pictures of the president are demonstrating across Egypt in support of him.

 

The Muslim Brotherhood, from which President Mohammed Morsi hails, hopes the turnout at the Saturday rallies will counteract earlier opposition protests. Hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets twice this week opposing Morsi's decrees last week to grant himself sweeping powers. (AP)
