Omar Suleiman will take over as president, NBC's Richard Engel says.

According to the director of a leading think tank, what is happening in Egypt is essentially a military coup. - NBC News Producer Charlene Gubash, World Blog

NBC says Mubarak will make a statement this evening and step down. A statement by the armed forces on Egyptian state TV says the military convened the supreme council of the armed forces "to safeguard people and protect their interest." Al-Jazeera TV notes that Mubarak was not shown attending that meeting. - USA Today


エジプト国営放送に出た軍の声明によると、軍は「国民を護衛し、国民の利益を守る」ため軍部最高国民評議会を招集した模様。アルジャジーラTVによると、ムバラクの姿はなかった。声明には、この評議会は危機終息まで無期限設置とすること、決定が国民の「法的に正当な」要求を受けたものであることが盛り込まれている(USA Today)。

UPDATE2: The military has #2 announcement tonight. 軍部から第2の発表が今晩あるそう。←Or maybe not...なさそうね…

UPDATE3: Obama released the statement from AirForce One.  エアフォースワンで演説を聞いたオバマが緊急声明を出し、「こんな曖昧な言い方では不十分だ」と再度辞任圧力をかけている。「今日はエジプトの歴史的な日になる」と上機嫌で演説した直後ムバラクに梯子を外され威信は丸つぶれ…。

UPDATE4:Yes, he resigned. VP announced now. 今、副大統領が辞任を発表した。
