Gunfire erupts in Cairo as protests turn increasingly violent between anti-government demonstrators and pro-Mubarak supporters today. It is not known if there have been any deaths yet attributed to this latest violence.

Mubarak supporters were out in the streets for the first time in large numbers, with thousands demanding an end to the anti-government movement a day after the Egyptian President went on national television and rejected demands for him to step down. This morning we talk to Congressman Greg Walden about Egypt: “Well, I think we’re all very concerned. That’s a very important and dangerous part of the world. A rough neighborhood. Administrations from George Bush through Barack Obama have tried to send Hosni Mubarak a pretty clear and direct message that he can’t continue to rule with an iron fist without eventually having this kind of reaction from his people. And he ignored those warnings. He ignored those suggestions and now his time has come to an end, clearly. But it is more dangerous than just in Egypt when you see the uprising in Tunisia, obviously concerns in Jordan and you don’t want this whole part of this world to become unraveled. Because, like it or not, it’s pretty important to the world’s economy, to make sure the flow of oil continues unabated. I mean, that’s the end of the story. We’re already seeing the price of oil go up; that affects us right at the pump. We’ll be paying $3.50-$4.00 a gallon. We’ve been there, done that before. And doesn’t help our recovery.” Walden in is Central Oregon today visiting with local business people and students from Bend High School.
