France votes: Le Pen urges backers to 'go on fighting'

Far-right leader Marine Le Pen had said the battle for France has just begun and urged her supporters to "go on fighting", despite coming third in the country's presidential poll.

French Socialist Francois Hollande won the most votes in the first round of the country's presidential election, ahead of centre-right incumbent Nicolas Sarkozy, early estimates showed.

He will now face Mr Sarkozy in the second round.
