Egyptians appear to have approved a new constitution after Saturday's final round of voting in a referendum, according to the Reuters news agency.
An official from the Muslim Brotherhood's political party, which backs the charter put forward by President Mohamed Morsi, said that after 8.1 million votes had been counted there was a 71 per cent majority in favour of the constitution.
Taken with the first round vote, the official said he expected the overall result to show a roughly 65 per cent majority in favour of the constitution. He spoke as counting progressed into the early hours of Sunday morning.
