Voting abroad starts in Egypt constitutional referendum

Egyptians abroad went to embassies on Wednesday to vote in a referendum on the new constitution that President Mohammed Morsi fast-tracked through an Islamist-led drafting assembly, drawing the ire of the opposition.


The official state news agency reported voting had started and one of Al Jazeera's television channels showed live images of Egyptians going to the embassy in Qatar's capital Doha to cast their ballots. (Reuters)
