Mubarak's Fall

The 82-year-old Mubarak's downfall after 18 days of unprecedented mass protests was a momentous victory for people power and is sure to rock autocrats throughout the Arab world and beyond. Mubarak took office in 1981 after Islamists gunned down his predecessor Anwar Sadat at a military parade. "This is the greatest day of my life,” former Nobel Prize laureate and democracy advocate Mohamed ElBaradei told the Associated Press. “The country has been liberated after decades of repression."
