Egypt's VP Omar Suleiman Subject of Failed Assassination Attempt

Egypt's Vice President Omar Suleiman was the subject of a failed assassination attempt on January 29, 2011. The attack left a pair of Suleiman's body guards dead and was deemed an "organized attack" launched upon Suleiman's motorcade shortly after he was appointed vice president by Egyptian leader President Hosni Mubarak.

Robert Gibbs, White House Press Secretary, has refused comment regarding the assassination attempt, during a FOX News interview, as the unrest within Egypt continues. Protesting regimes and government officials have not reached a compromise as hundreds of thousands descended at Cairo's tahrir Square on Friday demanding President Mubarak's immediate resignation.
