A protest against Eygptian President Mohamed Mursi and his Muslim Brotherhood party continued in Cairo on Saturday.
Some demonstrators spent the night in front of the presidential palace, after thousands filled Tahrir Square yesterday.
Mursi is being accused of monopolising power and failing the Egyptian people.
“Mohammed Mursi hasn’t done anything in relation to the promises he made about his first 100 days in office,” said one protester.
“He only has about 40 days left, so what could he possibly do in that time?”
The demonstrators appear to be largely made up of former regime supporters and those calling for Egypt to remain a secular state.
Mursi’s backers say it is too early to judge him, a new president with the mammoth task of rebuilding a shattered economy and raising living standards.
