Egyptians celebrate and wave national flags in Tahrir Square in Cairo, Egypt, Saturday, Feb. 12, 2011. Egypt exploded with joy, tears, and relief after pro-democracy protesters brought down President Hosni Mubarak with a momentous march on his palaces and state TV. Mubarak, who until the end seemed unable to grasp the depth of resentment over his three decades of authoritarian rule, finally resigned Friday and handed power to the military. Photo by Ahmed Asad
