Prince Hassan: 'Deep anxiety in the Arab world'

Prince Hassan of Jordan has expressed his concern over the wave of protest in the Middle East, calling it "a time of deep anxiety in the whole of the Arab world".

In an interview with BBC Newsnight's Jeremy Paxman, he said there was "a fear of the unknown", as the protests which started in Tunisia, then Egypt, spread to his own country.

On Tuesday, King Abdullah dismissed Prime Minister Samir Rifai from his post along with his cabinet.
