The polls have closed on the first day of Egypt's presidential election. Polls will open again tomorrow for the final day of the first round of voting.
First-round results will be formally announced on Tuesday, but the outcome could be clear by Saturday.
Early reports suggest that voter turnout is not as high as it was during the Egyptian parliamentary elections in November 2011, although it is a mixed picture across the country.
People are speculating on Twitter about why this may be, with some suggesting that the absence of the threat of fines or the weather could be a factor.
People queued at polling stations all over Egypt today to cast their votes in the first free presidential elections since the end of Hosni Mubarak's 30-year reign.
For many elderly voters, it was their first chance to have their voice heard.
74-year-old, Mohamed Abdul Radi told Reuters: "People are coming out in droves because they feel, like me, that this is the first time my vote has value.
"For the first time. Before this it didn't matter to me whether or not I came out to vote. The results were predetermined. But now I feel that my vote genuinely counts."

Egypt's Interior Minister, Mohammed Youssef, told BBC Arabic that vote-rigging in the election would be impossible. He said that judges overseeing the polling stations would start counting the ballots on Thursday, watched by representatives of the candidates.

Mohammed Morsi is the candidate for the popular Muslim Brotherhood. He used to be an engineering professor in the US.
