The young Google Inc. executive released after he was detained for protesting against Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak says 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, a marketing manager for the Internet company, has become a hero of anti-government protesters since he went missing on Jan. 27, two days after the demonstrations began.
"This is the revolution of the youth of the Internet and now the revolution of all Egyptians," Ghonim said in a television interview where he wept as he described how he spent 12 days in detention blindfolded the entire time while his worried parents had no idea what had happened to him.
