Egypt to pass new anti-terrorism law

Authorities say the new changes are meant to better protect Egyptians after series of attacks on security forces.

    A draft law is due to be signed by Egypt's interim president which could significantly broaden the definition of terrorism.

    The bill would give police and prosecutors more power to deal with suspects after a series of attacks targeting security forces.

    The government says the changes to the security law are meant to better protect citizens.
