Hi There

I have a soap webservice that returns XML in the following way.

<Response xmlns="">
    <Region>Eastern Cape</Region>
    <Region>Free State</Region>
    <Region>Northern Cape</Region>
    <Region>North West</Region>
    <Region>Western Cape</Region>

I would like to know how to create a list from the XML in MVC 4 to populate a select list

ViewBag.RegionId = new SelectList(GetRegions(),"Description");

 public IEnumerable<Region> GetRegions()
           var regions = new List<Region>();

           var strXMl2 = vws.GetRegions().;

         loop through xml

            return regions;

public class Region
        public string Description { get; set; }


Any help will be appreciated
