"In recent days, we've seen explicit calls for [Mohamed Hussein] Tantawi to be removed, and it is clear that for the military that crosses a red line. Tantawi and other members of the supreme council have been clear beneficiaries of the regime and Tantawi himself was a poodle, completely subservient to Mubarak. So this move against the father and the two sons is a response to public anger, and it will go some way to quelling the dissatisfaction of the protesters. People want these men interrogated and brought to justice – for reasons of accountability, but also for reasons of mischief-making and counter-revolution."

Samer Shehata, assistant professor of Arab politics, on Egyptian protesters wanting the removal of Mubarak-era ministers.
