Egyptians voted in the second and final day of the presidential election to elect the first leader since Hosni Mubarak was forced from power in 2011. Islamist Mohamed Morsi is up against former Mubarak Prime Minister Ahmed Shafik in a second-round run-off. The vote comes amid a bitter row over the dissolution of parliament following a court ruling on Thursday. Many voters have expressed more skepticism with the run-off than previous rounds of voting.
