    Violence broke out in Egypt on Saturday as voters decided on a divisive new draft constitution. Supported by Islamists within Egypt, President Mohamed Morsi’s party, the Muslim Brotherhood, had confidence that the document would be ratified. Half of all voters will cast their ballot for or against the draft constitution next Saturday. Officials said that a newspaper office was attacked by Islamists on Saturday, and armed groups attacked one another in the streets Friday.
