Egyptian Islamists call for rival rally at palace

Egypt's most powerful Islamist party called on President Mohammed Morsi's supporters to rally Wednesday outside the presidential palace to counter a mass outpouring of anger by his opponents, setting up a potential clash between the two sides.

 

About 300 opposition activists are staging a sit-in outside the Itihadiya palace a day after tens of thousands surrounded the complex to press demands that Morsi rescind decrees giving him nearly unrestricted powers and shelve a disputed draft constitution adopted by his allies without the participation of liberals and Christians.
