Finally Mubarak has gone! Yet again the world changes, which is fantastic for all those in Tahrir Square, all over Egypt and the world, who have peacefully demonstrated and finally got what they wanted. Sadly many died for their beliefs.
This is a global change, but how profound the change is going to be has yet to be realised.
Full statement from Vice-President Suleiman: “In the name of God the merciful, the compassionate, citizens, during these very difficult circumstances Egypt is going through, President Hosni Mubarak has decided to step down from the office of president of the republic and has charged the high council of the armed forces to administer the affairs of the country. May God help everybody.”
