(AP) -- Egypt's vice president says Hosni Mubarak has resigned as president and handed control to the military.
Car horns were heard around Cairo in celebration after vice president Omar Suleiman made the announcement on national TV on Friday.
"In these difficult circumstances that the country is passing through, President Hosni Mubarak has decided to leave the position of the presidency," Suleiman said. He has commissioned the armed forces council to direct the issues of the state."
WTAP is working on reaction to this change from local Egyptians living in the Mid-Ohio Valley and will have the latest on WTAP at Five and WTAP News at Six.
