The Egypt effect: Unrest spreads in Middle East

In the wake of Egypt's protests and the resignation of President Hosni Mubarak, other Middle Eastern nations seem to be following suit; there have been protests in Iran, Yemen and Bahrain, as well.

Professor Emad Shahin of the University of Notre Dame went to Cairo to participate in the demonstrations there and says protests in other nations shouldn't come as a surprise. He tells American Morning's Kiran Chetry about the current situation in Egypt and the political trend Egyptians might be setting throughout the Middle East.
