CAIRO - Egyptians began voting on Wednesday in the nation's first genuine presidential election that will pick the man to replace Hosni Mubarak who was ousted in a popular uprising last year.

Polling stations opened at 8 a.m., television reported. They will close at 8 p.m. With none of the 12 candidates bidding for Egypt's top job expected to win the first round outright, a second round is planned for mid-June.
