How can I create a new cell array from an existing one?

Hi,
I have this:
Country =
{
[1,1] = "SUB-SAHARAN AFRICA"
[2,1] = "Eastern Africa"
[3,1] = "Burundi"
[4,1] = "Comoros"
}
But I need to strip out the quotes like this:
Country_new = {}
Country_new = {}(0x0)
>> Country_new(1) = Country{1}(2:end-1)
Country_new =
{
[1,1] = SUB-SAHARAN AFRICA
}
>> Country_new(2) = Country{2}(2:end-1)
Country_new =
{
[1,1] = SUB-SAHARAN AFRICA
[1,2] = Eastern Africa
etc
But when I try:
Country_new(3:4) = Country{3:4}(2:end-1)
error: a cs-list cannot be further indexed
I just need a one liner to do the job on each of the elements all at once. I tried with a for loop:
Country_new = {}
for a = 1 : numel(Country)
Country_new(a) = Country{a}(2:end-1);
end
but I don't think it's right because it seems to take too long.
Thanks
