Blair: 'Middle East may pivot' after Egypt revolt (VIDEO)

Former UK prime minister Tony Blair has described events in Egypt as a "pivot" that could move the "whole of the Middle East" towards democracy.

Mr Blair, who is now a UN Middle East peace envoy, told the BBC's Andrew Marr show that the changes taking place in Cairo marked "a moment of huge opportunity, not just for Egypt".
