Saturday's storming of the headquarters of former President Hosni Mubarak's secret police is just as important as his historic ouster last month, say many Egyptians.
The resignation of Egypt's Prime Minister Ahmed Shafiq – seen as too close to ousted President Hosni Mubarak – demonstrates the clout the protesters wield as they push for real change.
Egyptians say not enough has changed since Mubarak fell two weeks ago today. The protest shows that toppling a dictator is but the first step in the uprisings sweeping the Arab world.
Among the protest leaders, two camps are emerging. One wants to present its demands to the military junta, the other wants to continue the massive street protests as well until all demands are met.
Egypt's new Vice President Omar Suleiman took to state TV Thursday night to make a play for Mubarak to hang on until presidential elections in September.
Egypt demonstrators calling for the immediate ouster of Hosni Mubarak held their ground in Tahrir Square today ahead of calls for more mass protests tomorrow.
Egypt's Army was absent during hours of fighting Wednesday night in which the antigovernment protesters were able hold off attacks from supporters of President Hosni Mubarak.
Hillary Clinton implied that Hosni Mubarak should carry on this morning. Mohamed ElBaradei, seeking to rally the Egypt protesters, says Mubarak must go "now."
In Cairo's Tahrir Square Saturday, protesters said President Mubarak's appointment of a vice president and prime minister wasn't enough, and expressed confidence that momentum was on their side.
