Thousands of Egyptians gathered in Cairo's Tahrir Square Friday, with Islamists in the forefront, in a protest against what they say are attempts by the country's military rulers to reinforce their powers.

It was called to protest a document floated by the government which declares the military the guardian of "constitutional legitimacy," suggesting the armed forces could have the final word on major policies.

Organizers said Friday's rally was an attempt to put "the revolution back on track." Read the full story.
