Right now on Fox News ... the Egyptian VP has announced that Mubarak has in fact stepped down (this time for sure?), and in Tahir square, the protesters are chanting ... "the people have brought the regime down."

On television, a roar from the crowd could be heard, horns honking, then suddenly the word came down that Muabarak was out of office and the Egyptian people will be "ruled by a military group." IANS reports wild jubilation in Tahir square.

A man that has been in power since the 1980s has been forced out of office by the Egyptian people.

Car horns were heard around Cairo in celebration after Vice President Omar Suleiman made the announcement on national TV on Friday.
