CAIRO (AP) — Several influential Egyptian newspapers have suspended publication to protest what many journalists see as restrictions on the freedom of expression in a draft constitution adopted by an Islamist-led panel.
Tuesday's protest involved at least eight independent newspapers. It comes as opponents of President Mohammed Morsi plan a massive rally outside his Cairo palace. The rally will be the latest against the draft constitution and decrees by the Islamist leader giving him nearly unrestricted powers.
The country's privately owned TV networks plan their own protest Wednesday, when they will blacken their screens all day.
The protests are part of a widening political crisis that has deeply divided the Arab nation.
