Egypt pro-democracy supporters face "great danger"

The pro-democracy demonstrators are in great danger, when the US supported Egyptian "transition team" - appointed and led by dictator Mubarak - orders the security services to take action:

"They are known to the security services. They have bet it all. And if indeed this regime survives -- if this regime truly, in a way, deludes us that it has changed ... most of these protesters, the leaders of these protesters are in great, great danger. I've been talking to several Egyptian intellectuals. This is now the most dangerous phase for those who dare stand up to the regime."
