Tonight in Egypt

Protests continue as President Hosni Mubarak dismisses his cabinet and vows to stay on. A fire set in the offices of the ruling party threatens the Egyptian National Museum, which holds King Tut's golden mask. "Egypt is the Arab world's traditional leader. The sight of its people losing their fear of the police state will inspire others across the Middle East," reports the BBC's Jeremy Bowen. Video from Al Jazeera English. More video: BBC, AP

It looks as if the Los Angeles Times has reporters Jeffrey Fleishman, Amro Hassan and Edmund Sanders on the ground in Cairo. Some really incredible photos have come out of Egypt from Reuters and AFP.
