It has been 18 days of demonstrations with hundreds of people taking to the streets and Takrir Square demanding that Hosni Mubarak leaves office or they do not stop the strikes.

The announcement was made by Vice President Omar Suleiman who was believed by many to take over but that is not the case as the army council is now in charge. The President was expected to make this decision yesterday when he appeared on national telly but instead he went ahead by telling the youth to go back home.

This was below the demonstrators expectations so on Friday, bigger numbers hit the street surrounding Government buildings forcing Hosni Mubarak to leave Cairo and hours later was the announcement by his Vice President that he has stepped down.

Two helicopters believed to be transporting Mubarak and his family members were seen leaving his palace en route to the Red Sea resort of Sharm El-Sheik. It is not clear where he will be heading to from there.

Women, men, children, the old and the young were all part of this campaign and they are now very happy it has paid off and the crowd is celebrating.
