Mohamed Morsi, the Egyptian president, has sacked the country's prosecutor general and appointed a replacement. Thursday's announcement followed a constitutional declaration expanding his grip on power. The decree prevents any authority from overruling his decisions including the judiciary. It prevents the assembly from drafting the country's new constitution from being dissolved. It also orders re-trials for all those charged with killing or injuring protesters during the revolution.
