Top Islamist accuses opposition of sowing unrest - Article Photos 1/3

FILE - In this Saturday, Oct. 13, 2012 file photo, Egyptian Prosecutor General Abdel-Meguid Mahmoud addresses hundreds of supporters, judges, lawyers and media, not shown, in a downtown courthouse defying a presidential decision to remove him from his post, saying this infringes on the judiciary's independence, in Cairo, Egypt. An Egyptian appeals court on Wednesday, March 27, 2013 annulled a presidential decree appointing the top prosecutor in a new challenge by the judiciary to Islamist President Mohammed Morsi that throws the country’s legal system into confusion. The dispute is rooted in a series of controversial decrees Morsi issued in November that sparked widespread protests. In them, he decreed that the prosecutor general could serve in office for only four years, with immediate effect on the post’s holder at the time Abdel-Meguid Mahmoud, in place since 2006.
