Egyptians vote

Egyptians voted in a referendum that will give Hosni Mubarak a third six-year term as president, preserving pro-Western, semi-democratic government in Egypt, Reuter reports from Cairo.

With no alternative candidate to President Mubarak, the main interest in the referendum was how many people bothered to vote, and whether the President would use his new term to speed up economic reform and allow more democracy.
