Egypt’s ambassador to the United States, Sameh Shoukry, was on CNN just now and emphasized that Mubarak transferred all of his powers as president to Vice President Omar Suleiman: “The de jure head of state is Hosni Mubarak, the de facto head of state is Omar Suileman.”

Asked by Wolf Blitzer if it was fair to say Mubarak now has no power, Shoukry replied: “That is certainly an interpretation you can make.”
