Street battles rock Egypt vote

Violence erupts outside polling station in Alexandria as Egypt votes for new parliament.


    Stone-throwing supporters of rival candidates have clashed outside a polling station in Alexandria during parliamentary elections in Egypt on Sunday.

    The violence came as many members of the Muslim Brotherhood, the country's largest opposition group, accused the ruling party of vote rigging and intimidation.
