November 29: A second day of voting is taking place in Egypt in the first elections since President Hosni Mubarak was overthrown, with indications of a high turnout in Cairo and other big cities.
Many protesters occupying Cairo's Tahrir Square have boycotted the vote. The elections for a new parliament have been mainly peaceful so far.
General Ismail Atman, a member of the ruling council of army generals, told al-Jazeera TV that he expected turnout in this phase of voting to exceed 70%.
