Republican Guard Ordering to Leave
CAIRO (AP) — After deadly street battles in Cairo, Egypt's Republican Guard is ordering both opponents and supporters of President Mohammed Morsi to clear out of the area around the presidential palace. Fighting there overnight left five people dead and more than 600 wounded. Opposition activists had called for another demonstration outside the palace later today. They have been demanding Morsi shelve a draft constitution adopted by his Islamist allies and rescind decrees giving him sweeping powers.
