Egypt's President issues decree to start work on constitution

Egypt's interim president has issued a decree for a committee of legal experts to start work on Sunday to amend the constitution that was suspended by the army earlier this month, the state-run news website of Al-Ahram said on Saturday.


The constitution was drafted last year by an Islamist-dominated assembly boycotted by liberals and Christians, who said it fell short on human rights and freedoms. It was put on ice following the July 3 ousting of President Mohamed Morsi. (Reuters)
