Australia set for hung parliament after close election

Australia appears to be heading for a hung parliament, with neither of the two main rivals likely to win the 76 seats needed for an outright majority.

PM Julia Gillard vowed that she would "keep fighting".

Opposition leader Tony Abbott said it was clear Ms Gillard's Labor had lost its majority and its legitimacy.
