EDISON - Many Egyptian Americans in New Jersey say they are concerned about their homeland after a nearly a week of violent, anti-government protests.

Hany Mikhail, of Jersey City, says the civil unrest is justified and he wants Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak removed from power.

"They're trying to do their best over there because they don't believe in their president," says Mikhail. "They don't believe he can do anything better for the country, for their country."Earlier today, State TV announced that Mubarak swore in a new Cabinet, replacing one dissolved as a concession to unprecedented protests.

Hundreds of foreigners are being evacuated today from the unrest in Egypt, with the first U.S. citizens expected in Cyprus soon.
