Egyptians go to the polls to elect new president

Millions of voters are casting ballots across Egypt to choose a new president, for the second time in two years.

Former army chief Abdul Fattah al-Sisi, who deposed Islamist President Mohammed Morsi last year, is standing against left-wing candidate Hamdeen Sabahi.

In Alexandra - the second largest city in Egypt - three million people are eligible to vote.

Sally Nabil reports from inside one of the city's polling stations.
