An Egyptian protester hurls stones at riot police. Egypt's powerful Muslim Brotherhood called nationwide demonstrations in support of Islamist President Mohamed Morsi in his showdown with the judges over the path to a new constitution.

Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood decided on Sunday to change the location of its Tuesday demonstration, said Mahmoud Ghozlan, the group's media spokesman.

The location was changed from Abdeen Square to Nahdet Misr Square by Cairo University.

The purpose of the Brotherhood demonstration is to express support for President Mohamed Mursi's recent decrees.

Ghozlan called on all forces to join the demonstration for the sake of "legitimacy and stability".
