Egypt: William Hague says there is a 'need for clarity'

Egypt's military has endorsed President Mubarak's transfer of power to his vice-president and his plan for a peaceful transition of government.

A statement from the military high command guarantees that the state of emergency will be lifted as soon as "the current situation has ended".

But Foreign Secretary William Hague tells the BBC that Mr Mubarak's speech is not very clear and it is still "quite hard to work out what powers are being transferred".
