CNN and CNN International's coverage of the fall of Hosni Mubarak was recognized with an Emmy award in New York yesterday. International Desk was one of the key shows during the historic events that led to the ouster of the longtime Egyptian president. For several non-stop days, our show was in rolling breaking news coverage as protestors in their millions demanded Mubarak leave office. We are honored to be part of a network whose field journalism and on air production during those days was recognized with such a prestigious award.

Congratulation to CNN and to all the staff who worked hard to cover this historic moment where for the first time an ancent civilization of Egypt revolted to become a people rule. Likewise CNN must continue to support all the present people struggle in all the middle east countries. Specially the international desk shoud keep this blog always open for comments from all over the world. People opinion is the biggest weapon against all these kings and army backed rulers, who are contining to roping the oil weath of some middle east nations.
