Egypt draft law seeks to regulate protests

Military-led government pushes for new law which would give police power to cancel or postpone protests.

    A draft law that was first written during the Mohamed Morsi administration is now being pursued by Egypt's military-led government.

    If the law passes, Egyptian security forces will have the power to cancel or postpone demonstrations. 

    Supporters of the law say it is needed in order to ensure citizens' right to safety while critics fear repression of freedom of speech.
