CAIRO Nov 25 (Reuters) - Egypt's main stock index plunged 6 percent on Sunday in the first trading session since President Mohamed Mursi ignited a political crisis by expanding his powers.

Stocks crashed just after the 0830 GMT opening. The stock exchange suspended trading until 0901 GMT, the stock exchange said.
