Wael Ghonim, Missing Google Executive, Couldn't Stop His Tears

CAIRO - Wael Ghonim, the young Google Inc. executive; freed after he was put away for taking part in protests against Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, admitted he was behind the Facebook page that helped spark what he called “the revolution of the youth of the Internet” two weeks ago. 

Wael Ghonim has become a national hero of anti-Mubarak activists since he went missing two days after the demonstrations began on January 27. 

“This is the revolution of the youth of the Internet and now the revolution of all Egyptians,” Ghonim stated in a televised interview, in which he sobbed as he reminded how he spent 12 days in detention - blindfolded the entire time - while his worried parents had no idea what had happened to him.
