Has Mubarak Stepped Down?

All the TV news sources are reporting that VP Omar Suleiman has stated that Mubarak has stepped down. No print stories yet, have to run to work. If you find any, post them in the comments.

Interestingly, if this is the case, it means Mubarak’s handpicked successor, along with the military, will be in charge.

(PS: If any other RWN contributors would like to update the thread through the day with links, that would be awesome.)

Oops, have two more minutes. From the BBC

“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,” he said.

“May God help everybody.”
