Egyptians vote in first elections since Mubarak toppled

Egyptians are voting in the opening stage of the first elections since former President Hosni Mubarak was toppled in February.

Queues formed early in many places but there are also reports of polling stations opening late because of administrative problems.

At the same time, Cairo's Tahrir Square is still occupied by protesters who want the poll to be postponed.

The head of the ruling military council has said Egypt is "at a crossroads".

Yollande Knell reports from Cairo.
