gyptian President Mohammed Morsi left the presidential palace in Cairo on Tuesday, as police battled thousands of protesters demonstrating against Morsi's decision to hold a referendum on the country's new constitution on Dec. 15. Opposition groups have accused Morsi of making a dictatorial power grab in November in order to push through a constitution drafted by an assembly dominated by Islamists, his own supporters.
