Protesters to Morsy: Roll back your decree or leave

Egyptians swarmed Cairo's Tahrir Square on Tuesday, seeking to revive a democratic groundswell that swept the country's former strongman from power nearly two years ago and demand that the man they chose to replace him respect their wishes.

Protesters waved flags and banners, chanting slogans and calling on President Mohamed Morsy to roll back his decree on presidential powers or resign.

"I now know that the Brotherhood does not work for the nation but for themselves only," protester Abu Eita said, according to state-run Nile TV. "Egypt is not all Brotherhood."
