7:12 am
talking about how mandela was his personal hero. someone who inspired him to get involved in politics. is a hero to the world. >> jonathan karl from south africa this morning, thank you. and a new showdown and fears of a potential civil war brewing in egypt today. at least seven people, including an american college student have already been killed in violent anti-government government pro tests. all on the one year-anniversary of president mohamed morsi's inauguration. this situation could all boil over just hours from now. alex marquardt is in egypt with the latest. hi, alex. >> reporter: good morning, paula. cairo is bracing for what are expected to be massive and likely violent protests against president mohamed morsi. the protesters here on tahrir square, which, as you know, is the birthplace of the revolution, are now loudly calling for a second revolution. even before the main protests
7:13 am
began, two days of violent clashes between opponents and supporters of president morsi. many of those who fought side by side two years ago to oust the dictator hosni mubarak are now fighting each other. liberal opponents of morsi say he's trying to impose his muslim brotherhood values on the country. that he's done nothing to rebuild it. the opposition has been joined by their old enemies, supporters of mubarak. >> we are looking to have a better life, more democracy. we don't want any more of the muslim brotherhood. we're not convinced of morsi. and we're going to stay on the streets until he leaves. >> reporter: an umbrella opposition group called rebellion claims to have 22 million signatures on a petition calling for a new election. the brotherhood says the u.s. is siding with their opponents.

let's bring in george stephanopoulos. >> good morning. >> good morning, by the way. the latest leaks, will they hurt the relationship with our allies? >> the accusation that we've spied on european leaders, it will hurt. i think they expected it. we've learned from snowden's previous leaks that we have spied on other leaders at the g8 summ summit. it's kind of accepted practice, even though when you first learn of it, you go, wow, how can we be doing this, looking at our own allies? we have to ask, how much more is out there? snowden took four laptops to hong kong. he and his associates have said there's far more to come. >> no one knows more about that question than julian assange. you have an exclusive interview. this morning on "this week." what do you plan on asking him? >> i want to know, where is snowden. the president of ecuador says his representatives haven't spoken to him since thursday. it seems like he's in limbo in
