WASHINGTON — Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will answer questions from Egyptian young people, in an online interview meant to show US support for the country's pro-democracy movement.
The interview will be posted Wednesday on an Egyptian social media web site. The State Department says users already have submitted almost 6,500 written questions, videos and audio files through that web site, called Masrawy, or through the State Department.
Masrawy attracts nearly 600,000 visitors each day, mostly Egyptians and many below age 35.
Many young people in Egypt have a low opinion of the United States after its decades of support for the autocratic ruler Hosni Mubarak, who was removed from office this month.
