US Backing of Egypt VP: Hypocrisy in Regime Change
by grtv

As protests in Egypt enter a third week, thousands of demonstrators are keeping up the pressure on President Hosni Mubarak to step down. Cairo's main square has seen a mass sit-in, but crowds are being pushed back by the army to get traffic moving. Banks and some businesses are now re-opening, but schools remain closed and the night curfew is still in force.

President Mubarak has ordered a reform committee to be set up with the task of changing the constitution. Meanwhile, the country's vice-president is being courted by the U.S to replace Mubarak.

But as RT's Paula Slier reports, Washington is considered a questionable mediator in Egypt itself.
