CAIRO - Egyptian Justice Minister Ahmed Mekky has started mediation efforts to try to end a crisis between Egypt's executive and judicial authorities, state TV reported on Sunday.

It was the first public sign of a government attempt to resolve a crisis ignited by Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi's decision to expand his powers and protect his decisions from judicial review.

Mekky, who has said he has "some reservations" about Morsi's decree, convened a meeting at the Supreme Court headquarters in Cairo, state TV reported, without giving further details.
