Australia heads for hung parliament after close election

Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard says she will keep fighting for her job, despite failing to win an outright majority in Saturday's election.

Ms Gillard says her Labor party has won the most votes overall, but opposition leader Tony Abbott says Labor has lost its parliamentary majority and its legitimacy.
