The Mubarak Interviews

A long dialogue/interview with President Hosni Mubarak, estimated at 7 hours, will be broadcast on Egyptian TV on Sunday, 24 April (according to an article from Islam-Online).

Islam-Online reports that Sunday's interview is the longest with Mubarak since 1982 when the Sinai was liberated (also he was fresh in office).

The broadcast will discuss the future of political and economic reform as well as present some "surprises".

The article says this latest public relations stunt is intended to win over some public opinion.
