Words of Caution

1730: Professor Fawaz Gerges, a professor at the London School of Economics, tells BBC 5Live that stability in Egypt is still a long way off. “They should be concerned about what’s going to happen in the next four to eight months, not just 48 hours,” he says.
1732: More words of caution from Fawaz Gerges of the LSE: “Yes, Mubarak is out but the political structure remains in place, the economic structure remains in place, the Mubarak regime remains deeply entrenched in place. You have Vice-President Omar Suleiman, the military commanders, the prime minister, the defence minister. Yes, it’s a giant step, it’s a major, major watershed for Egypt and Egyptians – Mubarak has been in power for 30 years – but the reality is the challenges have just begun.
