Students fight security forces in Egypt ahead of vote

Hundreds of students supporting Egypt's ousted president are battling security forces at a main Cairo university – two days before a planned vote on a draft constitution.

 

The clashes Sunday came as Egypt's Interim President Adly Mansour urged voters to head to the polls to cast ballots Tuesday and Wednesday. Mansour said that the draft charter used "moderate" Islam as a base for legislation. He also asked voters "to lead the ship of the nation to the shores of safety." (AP)
