According to the New York Daily News
Mubarak's exit was announced by his hand-picked vice president, Omar Suleiman, in a brief statement.
"My fellow citizens," Suleiman said. "President Mubarak has decided to leave the office of the president."
The Egyptian Army, he said, has been "instructed" to run the country in the interim.
I'm not sure what lies ahead for the Egyptian people but, I'm certain it is far richer than what lies behind them.
