Thousands of anti-government protesters are camped out in Cairo's Tahrir Square, after one deadline passed for embattled Egyptian President Mohamed Morsy to step down, and another one is looming.
Morsy was elected Egypt's president in June 2012, but critics say he has become increasingly authoritarian during his year in power and has failed to revive Egypt's economy.
In an exclusive interview in Cairo in January, Egyptian President Mohamed Morsy told Wolf Blitzer that it would take time until real change came to Egypt.
"I would say to start real stability and development, there are steps," Morsy said. "We may take six months or a year. To reach what we want, I think we may take five or ten years to reach 60, 70 percent of what we want."
Today in the 6pm ET hour of "The Situation Room," CNN's Ben Wedeman reports on the latest unrest from Cairo. CNN's Fareed Zakaria and Christiane Amanpour also join Wolf Blitzer for analysis.
