    The Egyptian TV is showing him right now with Sulieman, so he's still there.

    According to Aljazeera through the Egyptian TV: Mubarak is having a meeting with PM Ahmed Shafiq.

    Joe Strummer wrote that song in response to the Iranian Revolutionary government banning rock and roll. Basically though he aimed at as a sort of anthem for anti-authoritarianism in the mid-east. He would be crying with joy if he were alive today...

    Mick Jones and them better do an occasion for this.

    -A senior member of the Muslim Brotherhood reports concern the military is seizing power. Meanwhile, a US State department briefing has been postponed until a time "to be determined".

    -Al Arabiya: News reports that Mubarak has transferred power to Vice President Omar Suleiman

    You mean the one with Sulieman? It was just a 3 seconds footage repeated times and times again. But like I said they're reporting a meeting between Mubarak and PM Shafiq right now.

    They said, him not participating in the Supreme Council meeting (he is the Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces) is a sign of him handing over his power to the army. (I think they meant control over the army)

    -Al Arabiya reporter in Cairo: It is likely that Mubarak will not step down as President but will hand over all his authority to VP Suleiman

    -Al Jazeera: Egypt State TV: Mubarak is holding two separate meetings with Vice President Omar Suleiman & with Prime Minister Ahmed Shafik

    -"If General Sulieman or the military take over, that is of great concern to everyone," says Al Jazeera's Ayman Mohyeldin. "While the military is very much respected, people here want to see a transition from military rule to civilian rule." The past four leaders of Egypt have had a military background.

    -Al Jazeera's Tristan Redman reports people around him in Tahrir Square are "dancing in the streets".

    So looks like Mubarak will finally resign from his position? It's the only smart move to do although it still came very late. What did he expect that he could just sit this one out?

    I'm still disappointed that none of the European countries did anything during the whole conflict except spouting petty words. Obama at least talked to Mubarak directly not through diplomats or spokesmen. Here they are trying to teach us that democracy and freedom are our most important values but then they just sit on their asses and do nothing. Yeah, well played Merkel, Sarkozy & co.

    Edit: Just in case: I wasn't trying to say that Egypt couldn't have done this without help. Because they did and that really is impressive. Just the two-faced ways of European politics annoys me to no end.

    -Leader of opposition Karama movement tells Al Jazeera he believes "the military approached Mubarak and told him it was time to go".

    -Al Jazeera's Alan Fisher reports an army officer put his weapon aside and joined the crowds in Tahrir Square.

    -William Hague, British foreign secretary, says Egypt needs an orderly transition "that includes broadly based government"
