Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak will reportedly step down from Egypt’s government on Thursday evening, according to sources cited by NBC News.

Mubarak is due to issue a statement to the nation on Thursday evening, in which it is widely reported he will announce his resignation.

CIA director Leon Panetta said Thursday that there is a “strong likelihood” that Mubarak will resign Thursday night.
