Podcast (Audio only)

Huge protests have taken place across Egypt this weekend, aimed at toppling the country's Islamist President, Mohammed Morsi. Millions have taken to the streets, and violence has broken out in some areas.

How will the government react? Can the protestors come together behind a strategy to replace Morsi? Will the army - Egypt's powerbroker - intervene, as some in the opposition wish? Egypt is a pivotal country in the region and beyond.

This very timely briefing brings together experienced observers on the ground in Cairo and analysts from the U.S. to examine the situation at a critical time.
