Egyptian Islamists plan mass protest ahead of constitution vote

• Reuters
 

The rally announced by the Muslim Brotherhood responds to a violent confrontation between Islamists and their liberal and secular opponents in Egypt's second city last week that ended with a Muslim preacher besieged inside his mosque for 14 hours.

 
The run-up to the referendum on the Islamist-backed constitution, billed as a major impetus for Egypt's democratic transition, has been marked by often violent protests in which at least eight people have died.
 
The first day of voting last weekend resulted in a 57 percent vote in favor of the draft basic law, according to official media.
