In Pictures: Egyptians vote

A new constitution is submitted to a two-round referendum

Egyptians are voting on Saturday in a two-round referendum on a new constitution supported by the ruling Islamists but bitterly contested by a secular-leaning opposition that has waged weeks of protests.

Polls on Saturday opened in Cairo, Alexandria and eight other provinces and are scheduled to close at 9pm after officials extended voting by two hours, the official MENA news agency reported.

Voting abroad in Egyptian embassies was also extended two days, to Monday.

The other half of the country is to vote on 22 December.
