gyptian police fired tear gas at protesters in Cairo's Tahrir Square on Wednesday, as anger spread over President Mohamed Morsi's decree granting himself expanded powers. Tens of thousands of people spent the night in the square after a Tuesday mass rally. "We don't want a dictatorship again," one demonstrator said. Three people have been killed and at least 100 injured in nationwide demonstrations against Morsi's power grab, and at least two of Morsi's advisers have quit since Morsi last week announced that the country's courts would no longer have the power to review many of his actions. The Morsi administration has defended the decree, saying it was necessary to prevent judges from unraveling gains of the revolution that toppled longtime ruler Hosni Mubarak last year.
