      Egyptian Official Hints Constitution was Overwhelmingly Approved


      Egyptian voters have overwhelmingly approved a new constitution in a referendum held over the past two days, an Interior Ministry official said on Wednesday, according to Reuters.

      "Turnout so far may exceed 55 percent and the approval of the constitution is perhaps more than 95 percent," Major General Abdel Fattah Othman, director of public relations for the ministry, was quoted as having told private satellite channel Al-Hayat.
