Egyptians celebrate around an ancient statue of Kasr el-Nile bridge, created by French sculptor Alfred Jacquemart, near Tahrir Square, in Cairo on Feb. 11. 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.
