More than 10,000 Egyptians broke through the barricade surrounding the presidential palace in Cairo on Friday as the country's political crisis continues to escalate. The liberal opposition vehemently rejected President Mohamed Morsi's call for talks to end the violent clashes between the Islamist regime and the opposition. The fight over the future of Egypt will likely continue to broil until at least December 15, when the country's proposed constitution will be put to a referendum.
