Muslim Brotherhood supporters are celebrating into the night, after the long-awaited announcement that their candidate, Mohammed Mursi, had won Egypt's presidential election.
There were scenes of jubilation and some let off fireworks in Cairo's Tahrir Square, where Brotherhood supporters had gathered in anticipation of victory.
Mr Mursi won with 51.73% of the vote. His supporters shouted "Mursi, Mursi" and "Down with military rule".
Meanwhile supporters of the losing candidate, former prime minister Ahmed Shafiq, seemed stunned by the result.
There was also reaction to the result outside Egypt - these Palestinians welcomed Mr Mursi's victory.
Tension had been high across Egypt as the country awaited the result.
Both Mr Mursi and Mr Shafiq had claimed victory before the results were announced.
However, there remains widespread apprehension about the intentions of the ruling military council. This graffiti on a wall in Cairo depicts the generals controlling the elections.
The task of announcing the long-awaited result fell to Farouq Sultan, centre, the head of the presidential election commission.
Security had been tight for the announcement, with military police deployed outside the election commission headquarters and other parts of the capital.
