Egypt’s Supreme Election Commission says the new constitution has been approved by almost 64% of voters. Announcing the official results of the referendum, Judge Samir Abul al-Maati said the commission had investigated all the complaints of irregularities. Bethany Bell is in Cairo.

Almost two years after the fall of Egypt’s authoritarian leader Hosni Mubarak, Egypt has a new constitution. It’s a victory for President Mohammed Morsi and his Islamist supporters. He says it will bring stability to the country. It paves the way for parliamentary elections in the next two months. But it’s very controversial, critics say it has an Islamist agenda and allows Muslim clerics too greater say in determining legislation. The opposition says it will continue to fight against the constitution in parliament.

Opposition sources in Syria have said the commander of Syria’s military police Major General Abdulaziz al-Shalal has defected to join the rebels. There’s been no independent confirmation.

Security forces in Northern Nigeria say gunmen have opened fire in a predominantly Christian village, killing 5 people and injuring 4 others. A military spokesman told the BBC the attackers fired at worshippers in a small local church during midnight mass on Christmas Eve. Tomi Oladipo reports from Lagos.

Nigerian security services had given indications that were scaling up their operations this festive of season, but it appears these plans have not prevented another attack from happening. Residents of Peri village in Yobe state say a group of gunmen came to the village and headed straight to the church where they opened fire on worshippers. Local officials say some residents of the village fled their homes during the attack and have not returned. It’s not clear who was behind the attack, but Yobe state has been one of the scenes of violence in northern Nigeria led by the Islamist group Boko Haram.

A military plane with 27 people on board has crashed in Kazakhstan near the border with Uzbekistan. A senior figure in the Kazakh emergencies department told the media that the plane had burnt up and that only fragments remained. BBC’s Abdujalil Abdurasulov reports from Almaty.

It is not clear if any of them has survived, but Russian news agency Interfax reports they all died. The plane crashed some 20 kilometers away from its destination as it was descending to land. A local citizen told Kazakh TV that the plane exploded like a bomb.
