Muslim Brotherhood Rejects Egypt’s Draft Constitution
(Daily alert)

The Muslim Brotherhood has rejected Egypt’s new draft constitution that was approved by a constituent assembly on Sunday. The draft preserves some of the military’s wide-ranging powers and is to be put to a referendum in the next two months. The draft keeps Sharia (Islamic law) as the basis for legislation, but bans political parties based on religion.

    As the constituent assembly completed its work, security forces fired tear gas to disperse a protest in Cairo’s Tahrir Square by supporters of former Muslim Brotherhood President Mohamed Morsi. (BBC News)
