In the city of Mahalla the crowds had gathered in a football stadium to look on as Egypt's parliamentary votes were being counted to ensure that the counting would not be rigged.

The city was already tense after several polling stations were illegally shut.

Violence has marred Egypt's parliamentary elections with hundreds of opposition supporters battling police at vote counting stations.

There are no exit polls to indicate who is likely to win the vote, but what most people predict is more clashes and violence regardless of who the winner is.
