Celebrating in Egypt's Tahrir Square

The dramatic events unfolding in Egypt over the weekend have led us to release this Middle East Analysis - Extra podcast.

On Sunday, 30 June, millions of people came together to demonstrate in Cairo's Tahrir Square demanding the resignation of President Mohamed Morsi - the largest-scale protests in the square since the 2011 revolution that toppled Hosni Mubarak.

The Bishops' consultant on the Middle East North Africa (MENA) region, Dr Harry Hagopian, joins us down the line to give us his take on the dramatic scenes and how the Christians of the country are placed in the on-going turmoil.

Duration: 7m 34s

*Update*

5 July 2013

Since this podcast was recorded, the Egyptian military intervened to remove then-President Mohamed Morsi and announced the suspension of the constitution.

Can this be termed a military coup?
