Egypt Judges Suspend Work to Protest Morsi Decrees

From the streets of Cairo and across the nation, Egyptians continued protests against their leader's power-grab.

The latest challenge to President Mohammad Morsi comes from the country's highest appeal court, Egyptian state television reported Wednesday.

Judges of the Cassation Court said they are suspending work nationwide to show objection to Morsi's actions.

Could Egyptians rise up against Morsi like they did their previous leader? CBN News Sr. International Reporter Gary Lane has more.

Egypt's president sent the country into a tailspin last week after passing decrees that gave him and a few other Islamic leaders basically absolute power.

Since then, anti-Morsi protestors have filled Cairo's Tahrir Square, facing off with riot police in a call for democracy in their nation - not another Islamic dictator.
