As protests continue into a fifteenth day in Egypt, the Egyptian government has again postponed plans to reopen the country's stock exchange. Meanwhile life on the streets of Cairo has not fully resumed. The BBC's Kevin Connolly reports from Cairo on the country's uncertain future. "The egyptian government this week is doing what it can to create the impression it's presiding over a return to normality," he says, "but in truth, no one is sure where this country is going. they just know it's not going back to the old realities."
