mubarak resigns

egyptian vice president omar suleiman has just read a statement saying president hosni mubarak has stepped down as president, ending his 30-year rule. suleiman said that the higher council of the armed forces will lead the nation.

mubarak's move came on the 18th day of the protests that gripped his country, and after he had stopped short of stepping down on several previous occasions.

the new york times reports:
the egyptian military issued a communiqué pledging to carry out a variety of constitutional reforms in a statement notable for its commanding tone. the military's statement alluded to the delegation of power to mr. suleiman and it suggested that the military would supervise implementation of the reforms.
