CAIRO, June 18 (Reuters) - Hosni Mubarak's last prime minister, Ahmed Shafik, is beating "beyond all doubt" the Muslim Brotherhood's Mohamed Morsy in the presidential vote, Shafik's campaign said, disputing the Islamist group's claim that its candidate had won the election.

"The initial indications of the Ahmed Shafik campaign prove beyond all doubt that he is ahead in the elections despite all the violations," a spokesman for his campaign said in a statement. He said Shafik had won between 51 percent and 52 percent of the vote. (Writing by Tom Perry; Editing by Jon Hemming)
