Interview reported and produced by Pat Mack

The Egyptian community in Colorado is a pretty tight knit bunch. So they’ve all been talking about the protests in Egypt waiting to see what will happen next. Tuesday President Hosni Mubarek said he wouldn’t seek another term in the fall. But many want him to step down now. Dr. Ashraf Azeem is paying close attention to all of this. He’s a pediatrician in Aurora and grew up in Cairo. Azeem talked with Colorado Public Radio's Sadie Babits. He told her that he’s reached his sister and his parents who still live in Cairo.
