As Cairo and its people come under attack, we explore life under Hosni Mubarak's regime - the numbers and the analysis.

We also look at the knock-on effects as one of the world's important oil routes comes under pressure and the price per barrel rockets.

And we ask: Can Israel's economy weather the battle for its closest Middle East ally?

This episode of Counting the Cost aired from Friday, February 4, 2011.
