US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has said the Middle East is facing a “perfect storm” of unrest and nations must embrace democratic change.
Speaking in Munich, Mrs Clinton said the status quo in the region was “simply not sustainable”.
She said that transition to democracy could be chaotic but in the end “free people govern themselves best”.
She was speaking following unrest that has seen Tunisia’s president flee and Egypt gripped by protests.
