With protests over changes to presidential authorities made by Mohamed Morsi continuing, fear over instability in Egypt lingers. More on the protests and pictures of Sunday night’s protests after the break:
Thousands of demonstrators streamed toward the presidential palace for a fifth night of protests against Mr. Morsi and the proposed charter, and the president, a former leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, formally issued an order asking the military to protect such “vital institutions” and to secure the vote.
With the decision to boycott the referendum, the opposition signaled that it had given up hope that it could defeat the draft charter at the polls, and had opted instead to try to undermine the referendum’s legitimacy.
Protestors continued to be joined by government forces, who kept a watchful eye.
