Continuing Protests in Egypt
Yesterday, embattled President Hosni Mubarak selected Omar Suleiman, his right-hand man and chief of intelligence, to become Egypt's new Vice President.

Nevertheless, the inspirational protests continue. Follow the live blog on Al Jazeera English detailing the momentous events in Egypt.
