Egypt: Key group of judges refuses to oversee vote
The head of Egypt's key association of judges says 90% of its members have voted not to oversee Saturday's nationwide referendum on the country's contentious draft constitution.

 

Ahmed el-Zind, the chairman of the Judges' Club, announced the decision on Tuesday. The move is unlikely to stop the referendum from taking place, but it casts further doubt on the legitimacy of the constitutional drafting process. (AP)
