People flock to Tahrir Square to wait for an announcement from Mubarak

Photojournalist David Degner just left Tahrir Square. It took him about 30 minutes to walk 200 yards across the square because so many people are streaming into the square, waiting to hear a definitive announcement on the status of President Hosni Mubarak.

While it's been widely reported that he will announce today that he's stepping down, people in the square are waiting and watching to see if it's really going to happen.

Degner says there are moments of joy, as radio reports are broadcast about possible changes in the regime, but it's mostly a waiting game with musicians playing in the square to pass the time.
