Egypt: the sucession issue

Al-Ahram has a good piece on the succession issue ... hooking it to the interview President Hosni Mubarak gave on New Year's in which he denied that his son Gamal Mubarak was being groomed to take over the presidency.

This Atlantic Monthly piece profiled Gamal Mubarak and Lieutenant General Omar Suleiman, the chief of intelligence -- pegging them as the two men most likely to succeed Mubarak.
