EVERGLADES NATIONAL PARK, Fla. (AP) — Wildlife workers are returning to Everglades National Park in Florida to try to lead 41 pilot whales out of dangerously shallow waters and back to the ocean waters where they belong.
An Islamist party that backed the army's ouster of President Mohamed Mursi urged Egyptians to vote in favour of a new constitution in an upcoming referendum, saying that would spare the country more turmoil. The ultraorthodox Nour Party, which came second to Mursi's Muslim Brotherhood in parliamentary elections two years ago, had one representative in the 50-member assembly that completed the draft constitution earlier this week. "The Nour Party will take part in this referendum and will take part with 'yes', out of our concern for bringing about stability and so that we spare the country more anarchy," Younes Makhyoun, the head of the party, said in a news conference. The draft constitution reflects how the balance of power has shifted since the army deposed Mursi on July 3 following mass protests against his rule.
