After the dramatic events in Egypt yesterday, this is a special edition of From Our Own Correspondent. Hugh Sykes tells of the joy in Cairo's Tahrir Square as the president announced he was stepping down; Rupert Wingfield Hayes examines what will happen to the army of police, thugs and torturers who enforced Mubarak's police state; Jonathan Marcus explains how western diplomats were left floundering by this very Egyptian revolution while Sarah Monaghan's in Oman, a distant outpost of the Arab world waiting to see if the winds of change will blow through there as well.
