A supporter of Mohammed Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhood's candidate for president of Egypt, celebrates next to a giant poster of Morsi at campaign headquarters in Cairo. Morsi, a conservative Islamist candidate, was declared Egypt's first freely elected president on Sunday after the first presidential elections in the country's history. He narrowly defeated Ahmed Shafiq, a former prime minister under Hosni Mubarak, in a race that raised political tensions in the country to a fever pitch. The poster reads, in Arabic, "Renaissance is the nation's desire."
