Egypt is Finally Free…

These were the shouts emanating from the crowd this morning as word spread that Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak has resigned, relinquishing power after three decades of ruling the country. At this time, all power has been turned over to the military.

From CNN:

Vice President Omar Suleiman announced the resignation on state television and said he was transferring authority to the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces to “run the affairs of the country.”

Tens of thousands of emotional anti-government protesters erupted in deafening cheers on the streets of Cairo after the announcement.

“Egypt is free!” they chanted.

It was a moment anti-government protesters had been waiting for after 18 days of relentless demonstrations that called for Mubarak’s departure.
