US wants 'orderly transition' in Egypt

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Sunday the United States wanted to see an orderly transition of power in Egypt, where anti-government protests have threatened the rule of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.

"We want to see an orderly transition so that no one fills a void, that there not be a void, that there be a well thought out plan that will bring about a democratic participatory government," Clinton told the "Fox News Sunday" program.

We also don't want to see "some takeover" that would lead not to democracy but to oppression and the end of the aspirations of the Egyptian people, she said.
