Egypt's interim leader sets out election timetable

Egypt's interim leader Adly Mansour has outlined a timetable for new elections, amid continuing unrest in the country.

His decree envisages changes to the Islamist-drafted constitution and a referendum, which would pave way the way for elections early next year.

This comes as at least 51 people were killed in the capital Cairo.

The Muslim Brotherhood says its members were fired on at a sit-in for ousted President Mohammad Morsi. The army says it responded to an armed provocation.

Rana Jawad reports from Cairo.
