Demonstrators run for cover in Cairo after protests erupt over a new government decree. President Mohamed Mursi granted himself new powers, leading to unrest across the country. The injured find treatment on the street. Mursi's decree exempts all his decisions from legal challenge until a new parliament is elected. Police use tear gas in the country's capital to stem the unrest. In Alexandria, supporters and detractors of the President clash with each other, injuring at least a dozen people. Some set fires near the Muslim Brotherhood headquarters in Alexandria. They enter the building, destroying what they can. Mursi's decree comes after he won widespread praise from the West for his role in helping secure a truce between Israel and Hamas.
