Thousands of Egyptians continue to peacefully protest today, but there are fierce clashes between pro and anti-regime protestors. Kerry Gillette of La Pine spent many years in Egypt. Her parents still live there and teach at the American International School there. When the protests started over a week ago, they didn't plan to leave, but as violence escalated they changed their mind: “As we speak my parents are flying back. They had stayed and wanted to stay, but the turning point was they saw the violence escalating. They saw that the government was going to stop at nothing to remain in power. And they were becoming nervous the situation could deteriorate.” Talks are underway between the Obama Administration and top Egyptian officials for the possible immediate resignation of President Hosni Mubarak.
