What Does it Mean to be Egyptian?

55 minutes
First broadcast:
Thursday 15 August 2013

A day after more than 500 people died after protest camps were closed by Egypt's security forces, we hear from across Egypt and ask what does it mean to be Egyptian?
How can the country move forward from the cycle of violence? Also, we speak to experts about where Egypt goes from here? Should the international community intervene in the crisis? Where next for political Islam ?
