Anti-Mursi demonstrators stage a protest outside the presidential palace in Cairo December 7, 2012. Egyptian opposition leaders rejected a national dialogue on Friday that Islamist president Mohamed Mursi had proposed as a way out of a crisis that has polarised the nation and provoked deadly clashes on the streets. Opponents of Mursi staged more protests in Cairo and other cities, while his supporters in the Muslim Brotherhood held emotional funerals for six of the movement's members killed in fighting around the presidential palace earlier in the week.
