Egypt's Court of Cassation decided on Wednesday to suspend its operations in all its locations until President Mohamed Mursi rescinds a constitutional decree he issued on Thursday.

The court had convened an urgent closed meeting at its headquarters earlier on Wednesday where only senior members attended.

Mursi issued a decree on Thursday expanding his powers and shielding his decisions from judicial review - a move seen by Egyptian judges as an attempt to undermine their role and disregard the country's constitution.
