Cairo:  Egypt's constituent assembly early on Friday adopted a draft constitution that will be put to a referendum, replacing the one abrogated after the fall of Hosni Mubarak last year, chairman Hossam el-Ghiriani announced.

The Islamist-dominated assembly approved the 234 articles in a marathon meeting that started shortly after noon on Thursday and went on all night.
