Protests in Egypt

Anger turns to joy as demonstrators hear that President Hosni Mubarak was resigning after 30 years of strongman rule. Earlier, demonstrations against the government of Mubarak turned violent as Murbarak backers and protesters clashed and Tahrir Square was ordered cleared of the thousands of people that took to the streets. A curfew was in force but largely ignored as protesters set fires and tried to enter government buildings. Opposition leader Mohamed ElBaradei was doused by a water cannon, and the U.S. called for a halt to violent measures by the government.

Los Angeles Times photographers are in Cairo covering the unrest, violence and celebrations.  Michael Robinson Chavez tells what it was like to cover the bloody clashes between protesters on Feb. 2 and Carolyn Cole reports on the massive rally Feb. 1 in Cairo in this audio slideshow.
