Egyptians are to vote in a referendum on a new constitution, which could pave the way for fresh elections.

The new charter aims to replace the constitution passed under Islamist President Mohammed Morsi months before he was ousted by the army.

Correspondents say the military wants a strong "Yes" vote as a popular endorsement of Morsi's removal.

Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood, which has since been designated a terrorist group, has called for a boycott.
