On Friday February 11, the Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak resigned signaling an end to his 31-year tenure.  Yesterday, February 10, the former President gave some of his Presidential powers to his Vice President Omar Suleiman. His position has been tumultuous lately, since Egyptian citizens went to the streets three weeks ago in protest of the corrupt Egyptian government.

Power has been handed over to the higher council of Egyptian armed forces. Former President Mubarak fled the country and flew to Sharm el-Sheikh.  Earlier today, Mubarak’s assets in Switzerland were frozen which some analysts have theorized is the reason for his abrupt departure.
