Egyptians roared wildly with joy in Cairo and Alexandria as news spread early this morning that Mubarak would finally step down and the military would be ruling the country temporarily. Chants of “free Egypt!” filled the streets as crowds reacted to the breaking news, after 17 days of nonstop rioting and unrest. The historic uprising leaves many questions and uncertainty about what will happen next in the Mideast. Americans watch closely to see what role, if any the controversial Muslim Brotherhood will play in a newly forming Egyptian government in days to come.
