Eighteen days of protests demanding the resignation of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak were celebrated throughout Egypt on Saturday.
"This is the happiest day in my generation," said Ali al-Tayab, a demonstrator who paid tribute to those who died in clashes with police and Mubarak supporters. "To the martyrs, this is your day."
