7:25 pm
are being recorded. but, some civil rights groups like the aclu worry about privacy concerns and, said stati statement, we do not believe there is sufficient evidence to demonstrate the need to allow the installation of cameras continuously trained on place and drivers. however, despite some of the concerns no official lawsuits have been filed, challenging the law and, again the law only went into effect the beginning of january, and we'll have to wait and see how it all plays out. >> boy, potentially our faces could end up everywhere, cell phone cameras, digital cameras, everywhere. casey, thank you. getting our first look now at the video, spieaking of which a the center of a police abuse probe in seattle, an off-duty officer apparently kicking a suspect in the head and better late than never for a world war ii hero, who is getting recognized for his brave actions in battle and we ask, why did it take so long? congratulations to him, by the way!

7:35 pm
lot at stake here, they've hat peaceful relations, with egypt and when you have a neighbor with 80 million people you do not want that to be a hostile neighbor. prime minister netanyahu saying earlier today that he welcomes the egyptian military's statement that it will honor the peace treaty with israel and met a couple weeks ago with mubarak and appreciated mubarak's ability to keep the peace over the last 30 years and may have been a cold peace but it was peace and important for israel's security and israel risks more than anyone else if things were to change radically across the border and, things are looking relatively good but it could change over time without a stable presence like hosni mubarak next-door and meanwhile, palestinians celebrated in gaza and the best bank aftwest bank stepped down and there could be problems in israel because of changes in egypt and gaza has a border with egypt an israel
7:36 pm
wants to be sure who is in power in cairo is serious about blocking arms from getting smuggled into gaza to be used against israel and, finally, harris, there is some talk about an egypt effect in the palestinian territories. that is in the west bank and gaza for a lot of reasons, that probably will not happen and certainly, the palestinian authority is looking like it is trying to thwart it and they've called for new elections by september. harris? >> all right, that egypt effect, though, may be in other countries as we look ahead. greg burke, thank you. and here's what i mean. a day after egyptian demonstrators pushed president mubarak out of power thousands of algerians defied their government in massive protests and authorities arresting 400 people and organizers estimating the number of riot police out numbered the protesters, 3-1. and the algerian government banned demonstrations like this under a state of emergency declared more than two decades ago and the head of the main opposition group there say they plan to keep up the protests until the regime falls there.
