Egypt set for next voting round

Egyptian voters are set to go to the polls for the second round in the country's lengthy post-revolution election process.

The first round earlier this month was dominated by Islamist parties, with the party of the Muslim Brotherhood claiming around 47% of seats.

Islamists are expected to build on their success in this round to win more seats in the lower house of parliament.

The elections are the first since Hosni Mubarak was ousted in February.

Jon Leyne reports.
