Voting is underway in Egypt’s first parliamentary elections since the ouster nine month ago of longtime authoritarian leader Hosni Mubarak.

While Egypt holds it's historic elections, voters turn out in droves and this long awaited vote promises to be the fairest and cleanest election in Egypt's living history.

The Muslim Brotherhood, Egypt's largest and best organized group, along with other Islamists are expected to do well in the vote.

The Democratic Republic of Congo, is not filling the world's headlines, but it is at a crossroads. This day's elections could take Central Africa towards peace and realizing its potential, or -- the terrifying alternative of allowing it drift into more violence and instability.

For the people of Congo, for regional stability and global prosperity, the world community needs to support Congo's efforts over the long haul. Meanwhile, armed men attacked voting centers and a truck carrying ballots, leaving at least five people dead as the Central African nation held its second election since the end of civil war. Gunmen opened fire on a truck.
