A concession offered by the President Mohamed Mursi seemed to have little affect on protesters who blame him for plunging Egypt into turmoil. Opposition members rejected a constitutional referendum Mursi has set for December 15. Mursi's supporters, many of them religious conservatives say the referendum is a step in the right direction.
