Egypt court suspends April general elections

BBC News reports: An Egyptian administrative court has suspended general elections that were scheduled to begin next month.

It said the law covering the polls needed to be reviewed by the Supreme Court to determine whether it conformed to the constitution.

President Mohammed Morsi had said the polls would begin on 22 April, taking place in four stages over two months.

The elections have been boycotted by the main opposition, amid continuing street protests.
