Just a day after refusing to step down, Mubarak has resigned, abdicating control of the Egyptian government to the military.
BBC's live feed, which is mostly just covering the jubilant Egyptian crowd, here.
UPDATE (10:27 PST): Egyptian military makes a statement on state TV. "The higher counsel of the armed forces will issue a statement that will outline measures that will be followed...acknowledges that there is no other way than the legitimacy desired by the people...the armed forces salutes Hosni Mubarak for his service...armed forces salutes victims of violence."
UPDATE (12:10 PST): Obama addresses Mubarak resignation.
People of Egypt have spoken, their voices have been heard, and Egypt will never be the same....This is not an end of Egypt's transition, it's a beginning...I am confident that the people of Egypt can find the answers and do so peacefully...Egyptians have made it clear that nothing less than genuine Democracy will carry the day...Above all, this transition must bring all of Egypt's voices to the table...The U.S. will continue to be a friend and partner to Egypt, standing by to provide whatever assistance is necessary...For Egypt, it was the moral force of non-violence that bent the arc of history toward justice once more...There's something in the soul that cries out for freedom...
