'Egypt's soul on the verge of being shredded'

We look at coverage in the Arab press about Egypt's referendum on a new constitution. Morsi is criticised for being as bad as Mubarak. Also, the Greek press reports on the sigh of relief in Athens after EU leaders cleared much-needed funds. And is the end of the world nigh? You'd think so in one part of China where there's been panic-buying and stockpiling ahead of December 21st. Join us for this press review while you still can!
