'So far, so good' as Egypt votes in landmark elections

A second day of voting has begun in Egypt in the first elections since former President Hosni Mubarak was overthrown, with indications of a high turnout in Cairo and other big cities.

The first day of polling for a new parliament was mainly peaceful according to the BBC's Jon Leyne, who said it was a case of "so far, so good" in what is a long process.

There had been fears the vote might be delayed after deadly protests against the interim military rulers who replaced Mr Mubarak.
