Rival protesters clashed outside Egypt's presidential palace on Wednesday, as unrest over the country's controversial draft constitution intensifies. Molotov cocktails were hurled and a number of people injured. Supporters of President Mohamed Morsi dismantled the tents outside the palace set up by the leader's critics, who say the draft of the constitution was rushed through a parliament filled mostly with Morsi's Islamist supporters. A referendum on the draft document is scheduled for Dec. 15. Morsi has urged critics to put their concerns in writing for future discussion.
