'Egypt at a crossroads' is the title of a new round of France 24 debates. The channel travels to Cairo for a deeper look at the situation after the army removed Mohamed Morsi from the presidency on 3 July amid nationwide protests against his rule.

On Wednesday, the French news channel will broadcast three separate hour-long debates in Arabic, English and French. Guests representing all sides of Egypt's political scene will tackle the most pressing question facing the country: How can Egypt's differing sides find a compromise to allow the democratic transition to succeed?

Francois Picard, Taoufik Majied and Vanessa Burggraf will be hosting the English, Arabic and French panels respectively. The English and French debates will be shown on Wednesday at 7pm CLT, the Arabic debate at 8pm CLT.

The debates will also be available via cable, satellite, DTT, ADSL, on mobile phones, tablets and connected TVs. FRANCE 24’s new media platforms, which are also available in three languages, attract 15 million visits and 7 million video views a month.
