Thousands flocked to Cairo's central Tahrir Square to protest Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi's claim to near-absolute power.

An Egyptian protester blows a stadium horn as he gestures at a cordon of security forces near Tahrir Square, where an opposition rally has been called to voice rejection of President Mohammed Morsi's seizure of near-absolute powers, in Cairo on Tuesday, Nov. 27, 2012. Demonstrators and police clashed just hours ahead of a planned mass rally by opponents of the country's Islamist president, who are demanding he rescind decrees that granted him near-absolute powers.
