Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak makes a televised statement to his nation on February 10, 2011. Following more than two weeks of protests, anti-government demonstrators were given hope by official statements suggesting that Mubarak may step down after 30 years in power. But Mubarak said in his statement that while protester demands are legitimate, he won't give in to foreign dictates. He also said he has handed some powers to his vice president..
