The World This Week - January 17th, 2014 (part 2)

The only suspense in Egypt's constitutional referendum will be the turnout. The final tally for the two-day poll is expected on Saturday. The head of the army himself, General Sisi, went on an inspection tour of polling stations Tuesday. He’s widely expected to win the presidency. But there were pockets of deadly violence with the now-banned Muslim Brotherhood actively boycotting a poll that reverses changes made on its watch. Could this constitution really mark the end of Egypt’s revolution?
