The Muslim Brotherhood has called a “million man” demonstration for today to coincide with a huge demonstration organized by Morsi’s opponents.

The Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party says Thursday’s decree was a necessary move to prevent the courts from disbanding the Islamist-dominated panel drawing up the new constitution.

The judges have hit back, denouncing “an unprecedented attack on the independence of the judiciary and its rulings,” and calling for the courts to stop work nationwide.
