Thousands of Egyptians have rallied in support of President Mohamed Morsi after the country's highest court overruled his decision to recall parliament.

The demonstrators chanted and waved flags late Tuesday in Cairo's Tahrir Square.

The court earlier ruled against Mr. Morsi's decision to recall the Islamist-led parliament, which the nation's military leaders dissolved last month after the Supreme Constitutional Court found fault with the process by which lawmakers were elected.

The lower house of parliament reconvened briefly Tuesday in defiance of orders by the country's military and Supreme Court.
