Egypt - Morsy Under Pressure

Anti-government protesters are gathering outside of the presidential palace in Cairo, some of them throwing petrol bombs while security forces are using water cannons to stop them.

The clashes began as Egypt was marking the second anniversary of the revolution, and protest is not restricted to Cairo alone.
