Egypt clashes as president defends his new powers - Article Photos 15/22

In this Thursday, Nov. 22, 2012 photo, former director of the U.N.'s nuclear agency and Nobel peace laureate, Mohamed El Baradei, left, and former Egyptian Foreign Minister and presidential candidate, Amr Moussa, raise their hands in solidarity after addressing a news conference flanked by other prominent politicians, not shown, from outside the Muslim Brotherhood, to decry what was interpreted as a de facto declaration of emergency law by Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi, in Cairo Egypt. Egypt's Islamist president unilaterally decreed greater authorities for himself Thursday and effectively neutralized a judicial system that had emerged as a key opponent by declaring that the courts are barred from challenging his decisions.
