Egyptian President-elect Mohamed Mursi has praised crowds in Cairo's Tahrir Square, the focal point of protests that overthrew President Hosni Mubarak.

Thousands had gathered to protest against decrees issued by Egypt's military rulers.

Mursi swore a symbolic oath before the crowd, telling them they were "the source of all authority".

Mursi, Egypt's first freely-elected civilian president, will officially be sworn in today.
