Egypt: Sisi gets clear run as 'final rival' quits election race

Egypt's President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi has officially filed his papers to run in the presidential election in March.

The submission comes as potential rival Khalid Ali has withdrawn from the race - saying conditions did not allow for a fair contest.

Other candidates have been arrested or have also withdrawn from the race.
