Egyptians divided over new constitution

Almost two years after the start of the revolution, Egyptians will soon vote on a new constitution. But from the outset, liberals and secularists have been against the text, saying that the Assembly that drafted it is dominated by Islamists. There are also complaints the text has been rushed through to bring an end to the political crisis. But the Muslim Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party says only a "Yes" vote can bring stability to Egypt.
