Young voters talk about Egypt elections


As Egypt prepares to head to the polls for the opening stage of the first elections since former President Hosni Mubarak was toppled, Lyse Doucet speaks to some young voters.

Monday is the first step in an election timetable which lasts until March 2012 and covers two houses of parliament.

The first stage, running until January, covers elections to the 508-member People's Assembly.

Monday also marks the 10th day of a revival of the protest movement. At least 41 protesters have been killed and more than 2,000 wounded, most of them in Cairo.
