Egypt's referendum on a new constitution has been backed by 98.1% of people who voted, officials have said.

The draft constitution replaces one introduced by Islamist President Mohammed Morsi before he was ousted.

The referendum is being seen as a vote on the legitimacy of his removal and of the army, as the BBC's James Reynolds reports from Cairo.
