CAIRO Dec 15 (Reuters) - Members of Egypt's opposition Wafd party said Islamists had attacked the party's headquarters building in central Cairo with petrol bombs on Saturday.

The violence flared as Egyptians voted in a referendum on a new constitution intended to pull the country out a growing political crisis.

Two people were injured and firefighters said they had put out the flames, a Reuters witness said.
