ALONG THE SERBIA-HUNGARY BORDER (AP) — Exhausted, hungry and cold, they have been walking for miles. What little they have is carried in plastic bags. They camp in abandoned homes, followed by stray dogs hoping to snag a morsel.
By Ahmed Tolba and Mahmoud Mourad CAIRO (Reuters) - Egypt's parliamentary poll looks set to be delayed after a court ruled part of an election law was unconstitutional and the main election committee said it was working on a new timetable for the long-awaited vote. President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi directed his government to amend the law within one month. Egypt has been without a parliament since June 2012 when a court dissolved the democratically elected main chamber, reversing a major accomplishment of the 2011 uprising that toppled autocrat Hosni Mubarak. "The committee will prepare a new timetable for (election) measures after the legislative amendments are issued," the Supreme Election Committee said.
