Egypt At A Constitutional Crossroads

Egypt At A Constitutional Crossroads

Kojo talks with Egyptian-American journalists and academics about the stakes in Cairo and Washington.

Egyptian voters return to the polls this weekend for a second round of voting on a controversial new constitution. Less than two years after a broad, unwieldy alliance of Islamists and secular groups brought down the dictatorship of Hosni Mubarak, those same factions are now engaged in a bitter fight over the political and cultural future of the country. Kojo talks with Egyptian-American journalists and academics about the stakes in Cairo and Washington.
