CAIRO - Hosni Mubarak's last prime minister, Ahmed Shafiq, is beating "beyond all doubt" the Muslim Brotherhood's Mohamed Mursy in the presidential vote, Shafiq's campaign said, disputing the Islamist group's claim that its candidate had won the election.

"The initial indications of the Ahmed Shafiq campaign prove beyond all doubt that he is ahead in the elections despite all the violations," a spokesman for his campaign said in a statement. He said Shafiq had won between 51 percent and 52 percent of the vote.
