Mubarak's Son Flees to Britain

The Egyptian president's son has fled to Britain as thousands continue to protest across the country against Hosni Mubarak's decades-long rule.

Mubarak's son, who is considered his successor, left the country along with his family amid the anti-government protests across Egypt which are the largest since Mubarak took power three decades ago.

The plane with Jamal Mubarak, his wife and daughter on board left for London Tuesday from an airport in western Cairo, the US-based Arabic website, Akhbar al-Arab reported on Wednesday.'

  1. Mubarek has been able to remain in power in part due to US support. Mubarek is extremely hostile to Iran, so the US counts on Egypt as an ally against Iran. The problem is that the Muslim Brotherhoo­d has wanted to operate freely in Egypt, and Mubarek has treated it like subversive­s. Only time will tell if Mubarek is able to ride it out and pass power onto his son
