Back at the presidential palace in Heliopolis, Morsi supporters slam Tahrir protesters for, they say, “opposing the revolution.”

“We fully support our president’s decisions. Why do they want judicial powers to prevail while the judiciary needs to be completely purged?,” asks Mariam El-Shafei, a member of the Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party who bought her two children to the demonstration.

“People who are in Tahrir now, like former tourism minister Mounir Fakhry Abdel-Nour, are the ones who wanted the military to remain in power and preside over the constitution. Those in Tahrir do not have principles, they’re opposing for the sake of opposition, but we are defending our country, our revolution. I can’t say I’m not worried that Egyptians are dividing but we assure them we, here, are not merely perusing our own interests.”

Protesters in Egypt have set fire to Muslim Brotherhood offices in several cities, according to state TV.

They were demonstrating against President Mohammed Mursi’s decision to grant himself sweeping new powers

His decree states, among other things, that the president’s decisions cannot be revoked by any authority – including the judiciary.

Rival rallies have been held across the country by supporters and opponents of Mr Mursi.

Offices of the president’s Muslim Brotherhood party were reportedly attacked in the cities of Port Said and Ismailia. Earlier reports of an attack on the office in Suez were denied.
