Egypt opposition bemoan constitution vote result

Opponents of Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi refuted the authorities' claim that vote-rigging complaints had been "investigated" after voters approved a new constitution:

The result was so odd and no change in the percentage points shows that nothing was done to take our complaints into account.

– Khaled Dawood, opposition spokesman
