Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi faced a rebellion on Saturday from judges who accused him of expanding his powers at their expense, deepening a crisis that triggered calls for more protests following a day of violence across Egypt. Egypt's highest judicial authority, the Supreme Judicial Council, said the decree issued by Morsi on Thursday was an "unprecedented attack" on the independence of the judiciary. UPI/Ahmed Jomaa
