Egypt opposition rejects President Morsi's call for talks

Thousands of Egyptians have joined demonstrations against President Mohammed Morsi, after opposition leaders rejected his calls to enter a national dialogue.

Mr Morsi, who is under fire for issuing a decree that gives him sweeping new powers, had invited all major political factions to a meeting on Saturday.

But the opposition said the president had offered little in terms of concessions, criticising his refusal to delay a constitutional referendum.
