Update on the unrest in Muslim-majority countries


Hour 1

Violent protests against the United States government have broken out in more than 20 countries since last Tuesday, when the American ambassador, J. Christopher Stevens, and three other Americans were killed. These events are relatively small compared to the “Arab Uprisings,” seen last year. We’ll get an update on the unrest in Egypt and the attacks in Libya that sparked the demonstrations with McClatchy’s NANCY YOUSSEF, who will join us from Cairo. And we’ll discuss what it means for the United States to win the ‘hearts and minds’ in Muslim-majority countries with KHALED ELGINDY, Fellow with the Saban Center for Middle East Policy at the Brookings Institution, and MICHELE DUNNE, Director of the Rafik Hariri Center for the Middle East at the Atlantic Council, a Washington DC-based think tank.
