Egyptians to vote in referendum for new constitution

Egyptians will vote in a referendum on a new constitution this week.

The previous one brought in under the Islamist government a couple of years ago was nullified.

It is the first test at the polls for the interim government after the removal of the Muslim Brotherhood President, Mohammed Morsi, last July.
