NBC News is reporting that after an all day meeting Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak will step down, handing over power to his recently appointed Vice President Omar Suleiman, and that all of the protesters demands will be met. The official announcement is expected later tonight (Cairo time) when Mubarak will address the nation. After 17 days of Pro-Democracy demonstrations, it appears that the 30 year old military dictatorship in Egypt is finally coming to an end.
