Jimmy Carter: Unrest in Egypt 'earth-shaking'

Former President Jimmy Carter called the political unrest and rioting in Egypt earth-shaking and said that President Hosni Mubarak probably will have to step down.

 

Carter told a Sunday school class that he teaches that the unrest is "the most profound situation in the Middle East" since he left office in 1981. He said he thinks the unrest will ease in the next week, but his "guess is Mubarak will have to leave." (AP)
