CAIRO, Nov 26 (Reuters) - A Cairo administrative court has set a first hearing for Dec. 4 in a case challenging President Mohamed Mursi's decree granting him extra powers, the court said in a statement on Monday.

The case was brought by lawyers and activists, a court source said.

Other moves by Mursi have been challenged in the courts during Egypt's turbulent transition, and sometimes multiple challenges have been made over his actions.
