One million Egyptians are expected to march for the ouster of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak today. It's been a week of riots in the Middle Eastern country, pushing for a change in government. Madras doctor, Suzanne El-Attar was born in Egypt, but left when she was four to move to Pennsylvania. Her parents still spend a couple months a year in Egypt. She says last Friday night's uprisings were scary for them: “They don’t have a car. They had trouble finding a cab that would take them anywhere. And when they finally did, he said they saw tanks rolling in and they heard gunfire and you know, that made them feel uneasy. But where they are right now, in their suburb, it’s quiet and they’re not have any problems.” Egyptian leader Mubarak has named a Vice President and cabinet members, but protestors want Mubarak gone himself.
