Hosni Mubarak on Friday landed on Sharm el-Sheikh with his family, after a
speech delegating power to his Vice President Omar Suleiman on Thursday night,
according to Al Arabiya TV.

An airport source told
Xinhua earlier that Mubarak and his family left for Sharm el-Sheikh accompanied

Mubarak said in a televised speech on Thursday night that he will hand over
power to Vice President Omar Suleiman, but will not resign, in a response to
more than two weeks of mass protests against his 30-year rule.

The Egyptian army on
Friday delivered a televised statement to guarantee the political reform and
people’s demands in specific through peaceful transition of power, and calm the
nationwide protests that hit the country for more than two weeks. At the same
time, the army urged people to go back to normal life.

However, the statement was
not welcomed by protesters who demanded the army to act for the people.

Thousands of protestors on
Friday marched to the presidential palace, and some blockaded the Egyptian
television building chanting anti-Mubarak slogans.
