RABAT - Turnout for Friday's referendum on a revised constitution proposed by King Mohammed to placate "Arab Spring" street protesters is estimated at 70.6 percent, the official news agency MAP said.

MAP said the figure was a projection based on the count from two-thirds of polling stations around the country. Protesters who said the king's reforms did not go far enough to curb his own powers had called on Moroccans to boycott the poll, and some had predicted that fewer than half of voters would turn out.

Preliminary results of the election are due late on Friday, with the "yes" camp widely tipped to win.
