Unofficial and preliminary results indicate Egyptians have approved a controversial new constitution in a referendum.

Results reported by state media suggest that some 63 per cent of voters backed the charter over two rounds of polling.

Critics say the document, which has triggered mass protests, betrays the revolution that toppled Hosni Mubarak.
