As protests continue on the streets of Cairo, Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi faces a rebellion from the country's judges over his decision to widen his own powers.

Abdel-Meguid Mahmoud, the former Prosecutor-General who was fired last week told a club of Egyptian judges that he will challenge the threat to the independence of the judiciary.
