NBC News — Protests are expected to continue monday in Cairo. Rival protests in support and against Egypt's newly elected president are scheduled to take place just yards away from each other on tuesday.
The protests are in response to President Mohammed Morsi's massive expansion of his powers. Among Morsi's new powers, immunity from the nation's courts. Morsi said the new powers are needed to hurry up the transition process from decades of rule by former dictator Hosni Mubarak.
