CAIRO - The body representing Egypt's judges called on Saturday for an immediate strike in all courts and prosecutors offices in protest against Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi's decree expanding his powers.

At a meeting in Cairo, the Judges Club called on Morsi to retract the decree and to reinstate Abdel Maguid Mahmoud, the Hosni Mubarak-era prosecutor general who was sacked as part of the decision unveiled on Thursday.
