    Al Jazeera's Rawya Rageh, reporting from Cairo, says that though there has been "brisk voting" in the second day of Egypt's presidential runoff, the "revolutionary fervor ... has all but disappeared".

    Additionally, our correspondent says this round of the vote pitting Mohamed Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhood candidate against Ahmed Shafiq, the last prime minister under Hosni Mubarak, has been plagued with rumours "compared to a relatively calmer first round" last month.
