More

CAIRO, Egypt -- Early Friday evening, Egyptian Vice President Omar Suleiman announced that President Hosni Mubarak had "decided to wave the office of the presidency of the republic." The news was broadcast live in Cairo's Tahrir Square, which had been the center of massive, popular protests for 18 consecutive days. These videos capture the crowd's jubilant reaction moments after the announcement, the hours of celebration in the square, and the mood of national unity and joy that greeted Mubarak's departure in Tahrir and beyond.
