Egypt's Supreme Constitutional Court has said it is halting all work indefinitely in protest at the "psychological pressure" it has faced.

Islamist protesters earlier prevented the judges from meeting in Cairo to rule on a draft constitution.

The supporters of President Mohammed Morsi wanted to block any ruling that would question the document's legality.

The court said that Sunday was "the blackest day in the history of Egyptian judiciary".
