The Egyptian ambassador to the United States says President Hosni Mubarak has relinquished his powers to Omar Suleiman, the vice president. "President Mubarak transfered the powers of his presidency to his vice president," Sameh Shoukry told CNN in a phone call he said he made to clarify its reporting of Mubarak's speech Thursday night. "We can say the president is the de jure president and the vice president is the de facto president."
