Egypt crisis: Opposition rejects Morsi plans

Egypt's opposition has rejected an attempt by President Mohammed Morsi to end an increasingly bitter face-off.

Mr Morsi annulled a decree that gave him huge powers, but vowed that a vote on a new constitution would go ahead.

Opposition leaders rejected the move and called for protests on Tuesday. Islamist groups said they would hold counter demonstrations.
