Egyptians ready for 'day of departure'

Thousands of Egyptian protesters are again expected in Cairo's Tahrir Square for a "day of departure" rally aimed at ousting the country's president.

Hosni Mubarak admits he would be prepared to step down from office but said he fears what will happen if he does.

It appears President Obama's administration is in talks with Egyptian officials about the immediate resignation of President Mubarak and the formation of a new temporary administration before free and fair elections later this year.

Jon Leyne reports.
