With news breaking quickly all day from Arab capitals, I thought I would run a recap via the BBC World Service and their World Briefing program from 1900 hours GMT today.
As it came down, Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh resigned and left the country, presumably for New York where he is rumored to be undergoing treatment for a health issue. So, in following the list of former corrupt and oppressive Arab countries, starting with Tunisia and working its way over to Libya, Yemen becomes the latest in the Arab Spring Movement to give way under peaceful protest.
Not so peaceful is the testimony from witnesses earlier today in Bahrain who gave vivid detail of the torture of political prisoners during that country's recent and on-going protests.
Also, back to Egypt and Tahrir Square where civil unrest continues. A ceasefire has been called between government police and the protesters. This hot on the heels of upcoming elections Monday.
Historic news of the present - which no doubt will be heard many times in the coming months and years.
