US urges Egypt to implement rights under new constitution
The United States Saturday called on Egypt to fully implement the rights guaranteed under its newly approved constitution.


Egyptian voters approved the constitution by more than 98 percent in a referendum result that the government hailed as a popular endorsement of the army's overthrow of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi. US Secretary of State John Kerry cautioned in a statement, however, that "it's not one vote that determines a democracy." He added "it's what comes next that will shape Egypt's political, economic and social framework for generations." (AFP)
