Brazil election: Dilma Rousseff to face Aecio Neves in run-off

Brazilian incumbent Dilma Rousseff has won most votes in the country's presidential election, but has fallen short of outright victory.

She received about 42% of the vote and is set to face a run-off against centrist Aecio Neves, who got 34%.

Analysts now predict a potentially tight second round on 26 October.

Prominent environmentalist Marina Silva, who finished third with 21%, is now out of the race.
