The Muslim Brotherhood's Mohammed Mursi has called for national unity following his victory in Egypt's presidential elections.

Mursi, an Islamist and Egypt's first democratically elected leader, said he would be president for all Egyptians.

He won 51.73% of the vote in last-week's run-off, beating former Prime Minister Ahmed Shafiq.

World leaders have congratulated Mursi with the White House urging Egypt to be "a pillar of regional peace".

It is widely believed that the Muslim Brotherhood have reassured Washington that an Islamist government in Egypt would respect the peace deal with Israel.
