2011 Mubarak Resigns

On February 12, 2011, Hosni Mubarak, President of Egypt was forced to resign, after 18 days of demonstrations by opponents of the Egyptian regime. The demonstrations began after the long-term ruler of Tunisia, President Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali, was forced to resign following demonstrations there.  President Mubarak tried to make concessions to appease the demonstrators. However, his efforts were considered "too little, too late".  The army has vowed to supervise a transition from the previous regime to a true democracy.
