Egypt Heats Up as Millions Protest Morsi

Millions of people have rallied across Egypt calling for the ouster of President Mohamed Morsi one year after his inauguration. With turnout as high as 17 million, it's Egypt's largest protests since the 2011 revolution that ousted Hosni Mubarak. Clashes on Sunday left at least 16 people dead and nearly 800 injured. Tens of thousands of people remain in Cairo's Tahrir Square and outside the presidential palace, vowing to stay until Morsi steps down.
