    With the polls closed and counting underway in Egypt's landmark presidential election, the Muslim Brotherhood is claiming that its candidate is through to a second round run-off next month.

    Based on its own estimates, the group says Mohamed Mursi is currently in first place, securing around 25 per cent of the votes tallied up so far.
