      Polls Open in Egypt

      Polls opened in Egypt Sunday morning under heavy police and military guard, as the country elects a parliament in an election seen as crucial to the future political leadership of President Hosni Mubarak and his son Gamal. Police and army soldiers are spread throughout the country in order to ensure orderly voting and prevent riots.

      There are forty one million voters in Egypt, but the country usually has a voting rate of between 30%-35%.
