Egypt's Mubarak 'may stand down'

Anti-Mubarak protesters, Cairo, 10 Februaryent Hosni Mubarak is to make an address on national television, amid suggestions that he is preparing to step down.
A senior member of Egypt's governing party, Hossan Badrawi, has told the BBC he "hopes" Mr Mubarak will transfer power to Vice-President Omar Suleiman.

The US Central Intelligence Agency says there is a "strong likelihood" that Mr Mubarak will step down soon.
It comes on the 17th day of protests against his 30-year rule.
Earlier, Prime Minister Ahmed Shafiq told BBC Arabic that the scenario of President Mubarak stepping down was being discussed.
The BBC's Lyse Doucet, in Cairo, says the fact that President Mubarak's departure is even being talked about is a huge development.
