Islamist backers of Egypt's President Mohammed Morsi are holding mass rallies to support his sweeping new powers and the drafting of a constitution.

The demonstrations in Cairo come after days of rival protests by supporters and opponents of the president.

The BBC's Bethany Bell is at one rally outside Cairo university, where people are shouting "raise your head high, your president is Morsi."
