ine Egyptians were injured on Tuesday as gunmen shot at people camping out in Cairo's Tahrir Square to protest President Mohamed Morsi's efforts to push through a constitution written by his Islamist supporters. Opposition leaders called for a fresh day of massive street demonstrations to persuade Morsi to postpone a planned Dec. 15 referendum on the constitution. The protesters planned to converge on Morsi's presidential palace. Cairo police braced for possible clashes with counter-demonstrators, as the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood was reportedly pushing for two "million-man" marches — with the slogan, "Yes to legitimacy" — in support of Morsi and the referendum.
