Hosted by

Massive crowds filled the streets of Egyptian cities today after the Army announced it would not fire on demonstrators. President Mubarak's hold on power is increasingly tenuous. We hear from Cairo and look at reaction from the Middle East to Washington. Also, Jordan's King Abdullah II fires his government, and yesterday's ruling that all provisions of healthcare reform are unconstitutional.
