Tens of thousands of protesters clashed with police outside the country's presidential palace Tuesday in Cairo.
In 2011, Egyptians protested the rule of President Hosni Mubarak, now demonstrations turn against the newly elected president, Mohammed Mursi.
Egyptians are angry about Mursi's recent decree in the constitution that would give him nearly unrestricted powers. Mursi wants to put the constitution to a vote next week.
Correspondent Noel King in Cairo says demonstrators showed up at several places in Cairo and other cities in Egypt as well.
