|Dan 11:42||He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape.|
The son of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak is said to have fled to London after the country was rocked by two days of riots over poverty.
Gamal Mubarak, 48 and believed to be his father's choice of successor, boarded a private jet from Cairo to London with his wife, daughter and around 100 piece of luggage, according to reports.
His sudden flight, reported by the U.S. based Arabic website Akhbar al-Arab came as hundreds of demonstrators hit the streets despite a government ban on protests.
But strengthened forces quickly moved in and used tear gas and beatings to disperse them.
