Breaking News: Mubarek Steps Down - For Real

Reported by Ellen - February 11, 2011 -

From the New York Times: President Hosni Mubarak of Egypt turned over all power to the military, and left the Egyptian capital for his resort home in Sharm el-Sheik, Vice President Omar Suleiman announced on state television on Friday.

The Times reported that the news "set off a frenzy of celebration" and that the military has pledged "to carry out a variety of constitutional reforms in a statement notable for its commanding tone."

I'm watching Happening Now and they're covering the news straight, so far. What kind of coverage are you seeing or hearing? What are your thoughts? This is an open thread on Egypt.
