Celebration

Supporters of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood candidate Mohammed Morsi celebrate in Tahrir square in Cairo on June 18. The Brotherhood claimed victory in Egypt's first free presidential election since Hosni Mubarak was ousted more than a year ago. The Brotherhood reported on its website that its candidate won 52 percent of the vote in the weekend elections, with ballots counted at 95 percent of polling stations. Army-backed rival Ahmed Shafiq, who served as prime minister under deposed dictator Hosni Mubarak, disputed the announcement, saying that Shafiq's campaign had figures showing him leading the vote.
