Egypt is bracing for a day of fresh protests after opposition leaders reacted angrily to a televised speech by President Mohammed Morsi.

Mr Morsi, 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 BBC's Jon Leyne in Cairo said that many members of the opposition found the president's words to be "positively inflammatory".
