EL-ARISH, Egypt (Ma'an) -- Egyptian security services seized explosives in the northern Sinai peninsula on Saturday, as Egypt went to the polls over a new constitution.

Security services in the Sinai were on high alert on Saturday, the first day of polls in a referendum on a new constitution for Egypt.
