Political parties in Egypt have agreed on how to select the panel that will write the country's new constitution, ending weeks of deadlock.

The deal was reached after talks between representatives of 22 political parties and military ruler Hussein Tantawi.

Panel members from the parliament are expected to be elected next week.

The previous panel was dissolved after liberals and secularists walked out, saying it was dominated by Islamists.
