Egypt's opposition said it will keep fighting the country's Islamist-backed constitution. The official results of two rounds of voting on the new constitution are expected later today.

The Muslim Brotherhood, the main group backing the charter, claimed the controversial constitution passed with a 64% "yes" vote. The opposition alleges widespread voter fraud and is demanding an investigation.
