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 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.
