Events are changing very rapidly in Egypt.
It’s now being reported that Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak has stepped down and handed control of Egypt to the military, Vice President Omar Suleiman said in an address on state television Friday.
Car horns were heard and Egyptian flags were waving in celebration after Suleiman made the announcement.
"In these difficult circumstances that the country is passing through, President Hosni Mubarak has decided to leave the position of the presidency," Suleiman said. He has commissioned the armed forces council to direct the issues of the state."
As protesters filled Tahrir Square in another day of demonstrations, an Israeli military intelligence official told Fox News that President Mubarak has left Cairo via helicopter, and was headed to his residence in Sharem a-Sheikh, a resort town in Egypt.
