Egypt votes: 'Quiet' at Alexandria polling station

Egypt's presidential election has entered a third day after the military-backed interim authorities extended voting in an effort to boost turnout.

It comes after a last-minute decision to declare Tuesday a holiday failed to persuade people to cast their ballots.

A low turnout threatens to undermine the legitimacy of former military chief Abdul Fattah al-Sisi, who is expected to easily beat leftist Hamdeen Sabahi.
