An Egyptian court is considering whether to disqualify one of Egypt's presidential candidates just two days before the country is due to vote in the final stage of the historic election.

Which could result in the former Prime Minister Ahmed Shafiq, being banned from the contest, over his links to the old regime.

The Islamic Muslim Brotherhood, which already dominates the country's parliament. Believes that its candidate Dr Mohammed Morsi, will emerge with the largest share.

There have been mass demonstrations in Tahrir Square in recent days, with thousands decrying Mr Shafiq as an "enemy of the revolution". But there is also alarm among many secular, liberal Egyptians at the prospect of a Muslim Brotherhood victory who wants Egypt to be governed according to Sharia law.
