Cairo - Egypt's President Mohamed Morsi on Saturday said a controversial new constitution guaranteed equal rights to all Egyptians, in an address before a newly empowered senate.

“All are equal before the law, and in this constitution,” he said of the charter drawn up by an Islamist-dominated council and approved in a referendum, adding that there would be “freedom for all people, with no exceptions.” -Sapa-AFP
