Clashes between police and protesting youths erupted near Cairo's Tahrir Square ahead of a mass rally against a decree by Islamist President Mohamed Morsi granting himself broad powers.

On the edge of the square near the US embassy in Cairo, teenagers threw rocks at police who responded with tear gas.

In Tahrir itself, protesters took to the podium urging an end to the confrontation between the teenagers and the police, which threatened to spill into the square.

Marches are planned from across the capital into Tahrir -- the epicentre of protests that toppled Hosni Mubarak last year -- where the numbers are expected to swell after the end of the work day.
