"The prime minister appointed by ousted President Hosni Mubarak resigned Thursday as Egypt's revolutionary movement prepared for mass demonstrations against him. The resignation of Ahmed Shafiq, a former air force general and one of the most potent hold-over symbols of the Mubarak regime, was announced on the ruling military council's website. He had been criticized for his condescending air toward young protesters and a lack of vision." (03/03/11)
