Morsi's power grab has prompted demonstrations in Tahrir Square

Clashes in Cairo continued Wednesday between police and several hundred Egyptian protesters following Tuesday's massive demonstration against Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi.

Police fired tear gas into a mob of stone-throwing protesters on a street near the U.S. Embassy in Cairo. Other Egyptian demonstrators staged a sit-in Wednesday at Tahrir Square, the epicenter of protests during last year's ouster of Morsi's predecessor, Hosni Mubarak.
