CAIRO - Egypt's highest judicial authority said a decree issued by President Mohamed Morsi and which shields his decisions from judicial review must only be applied to decisions or laws relating to "sovereign matters."

The Supreme Judicial Council in a statement read on state TV also called on judges to keep courts and prosecution offices functioning after the influential Judges' Club called on Saturday for a countrywide strike in protest at Morsi's decree.
