CAIRO - Supporters and opponents of Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi scuffled on Wednesday outside the presidential palace in Cairo, hurling stones and other objects at each other.

The president's backers tore down tents erected by opponents of Morsi who began a sit-in on Tuesday against the president's expanded powers and his decision to race through a new constitution they said did not represent the whole nation.
