Egyptian assembly rushes to finish constitution
The assembly writing a new Egyptian constitution says it hopes to vote on a draft version as early as Thursday.
The news came as the constitutional court indicated it would rule on Sunday whether to dissolve the assembly.
Egypt's judiciary is in a stand-off with President Mohammed Morsi and his Islamist supporters, after Mr Morsi last week issued a decree granting himself sweeping new powers. The decree has sparked huge protests across the country.
