Egypt Protests: Obama, Netanyahu And Other World Leaders React To Anti-Mubarak Demonstrations

As Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak stares down nearly a full week of massive social upheaval, international leaders have begun to voice their opinions on the nation's ongoing unrest.

In Washington, President Barack Obama expressed interest in an "orderly transition" within the country, and French President Nicolas Sarkozy stating that his nation was prepared to support "this peaceful change."

Within the region, support for the beleaguered Mubarak was more widespread, with Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh confirming his nation's solidarity with Egypt and Saudi King Abdullah bin Abdel Aziz strongly criticizing protesters' motivations.
