Mubarak resignation hailed as win for democracy

BREAKING NEWS PARIS: World leaders on Friday hailed the toppling of Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak as a historic victory for people power that paves the way for democracy.

As Mubarak’s three-decade-long rule ended a day after he enraged protesters by refusing to stand down, messages of congratulation to the Egyptian people flooded in.

US President Barack Obama said the people of Egypt had spoken and would settle for nothing less than “genuine democracy.””The people of Egypt have spoken — their voices have been heard and Egypt will never be the same,” Obama said.

The armed forces would now have to ensure a political transition that was “credible in the eyes of the Egyptian people,” Obama said, warning however that there could be “difficult days ahead.”
