Al-Jazeera Video: Egyptians react to Mubarak's son in Israeli-Palestinian talks

"The attendance and involvement of the son of the Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak in the ongoing Middle East talks in Washington DC has raised speculation in Egypt over whether he will become his father's successor.

Opposition groups say Gamal Mubarak's appearance in such high-level discussions is an attempt to boost his image as a potential leader, and many fear a presidential election could be rigged to grant him victory.

Attempts to hand over power to him could trigger a major backlash and instability in the most populous Arab country.

Ayman Mohyeldin reports from Cairo, Egypt's capital, on reactions to his involvement in the talks."
