Protesters storm an office of Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood Freedom and Justice party in the Mediterranean port city of Alexandria, Egypt, on Nov. 23, 2012, and set fires. State TV says Morsi opponents also set fire to his party's offices in the Suez Canal cities of Suez, Port Said and Ismailia. Opponents and supporters of Morsi clashed across Egypt, the day after the president granted himself sweeping new powers that critics fear can allow him to be a virtual dictator.
