CAIRO: Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood called for a mass demonstration in Cairo on Tuesday to show support for President Mohammad Mursi, who is facing a storm of protest for issuing a decree that expanded his powers.

In a statement published on its website, the Brotherhood also called for shows of support in public squares across Egypt after early evening prayers on Sunday to show support for Mursi's decisions.

Parties opposed to the decree have also called for a protest on Tuesday in Cairo, though in a different square from the one where the Brotherhood called on its supporters to gather.
