Mursi: I am president 'for all Egyptians'

Egypt's first democratically-elected president, Mohammed Mursi, will start forming a government, after promising to be a leader for all Egyptians.

World leaders have congratulated the Muslim Brotherhood's candidate who defeated ex-PM Ahmed Shafiq.

Mr Mursi could be sworn in on 30 June, although questions remain over the extent of his authority.

The ruling military council has taken control of many of the president's powers and has dissolved parliament.

Jon Leyne reports.
