Dramatic violence erupts in central Cairo, as more pressure mounts on the Egyptian president  to leave office immediately - even though he says he wont run for re-election. Away from the demonstrations, there is worrying political uncertainty.

Mubarak says he will stand down, but how will the transition of power be managed - and what role will Egypt's military play in shaping the country's future? What are the political options open to Mubarak?

Joining Darren Jordan on the show will be Andrea Teti, a lecturer in international relations at the University of Aberdeen, and Omar Ashour, a lecturer in politics of the modern Arab world at the Institute of Arab and Islamic Studies, University of Exeter.

This episode of Inside Story aired from Wednesday, February 2, 2011.
