Al-Jazeera Video: Egyptian presidential candidates barred
"Election officials in Egypt have barred some of the leading candidates from running for president.
The list includes several high profile names, such as Khairat al-Shater, the Muslim Brotherhood's candidate, and Omar Suleiman, Hosni Mubarak's former vice-president and intelligence chief.
Hazem Abu Ismail, the candidate representing the ultra-conservative Salafi al-Nur party, has also been barred, as has Ayman Nour, a prominent opposition leader.
Al Jazeera's Sherine Tadros reports from Cairo."
