People in Cairo are setting up neighborhood watch groups to protect their property against the looters as unrest continues in the capital. Despite a nighttime curfew, thousands of demonstrators continue to fill the streets, demanding Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak step down. There are reports three people have been killed by police fire. NPR's Lourdes Garcia-Navarro is in Cairo. She reports health professionals are struggling to treat the injured.

They basically put a makeshift hospital inside a mosque1. And the scene there is incredibly chaotic2. There are doctors working with people on the bare floors with the absolute bare minimum. One man I saw right in front of me was suffering from a heart attack. They were giving him CPR in order to try and revive him so that he can be taken to the hospital. Others were being stitched off from various wounds. There have been some fatalities3 we understand today as well. I can't confirm that. I didn't see it for myself. But certainly, that is what the doctors at this particular makeshift hospital were telling us, you know, on the one hand, outside, you see this kind of festive4 atmosphere in this particular area. There doesn't seem to be violence. But certainly, walking into this makeshift hospital, you see the results of the violence that have erupted in other parts of the city.

NPR's Lourdes Garcia-Navarro. The demonstrators are not likely to be placated5 by President Mubarak's actions today. He picked a new prime minister and a vice6 president. NPR's Susannah George reports.

The appointments come a day after Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak dissolved parliament, another attempt to appease7 angry protesters calling for an end to his 30-year term as president. Both Omar Suleiman, the new Vice President, and Ahmed Shafik, the new Prime Minister, are ex-ministers close to the president with strong ties to the military. Suleiman was a cabinet minister and leader of Egypt's national intelligence agency while Shafik was a minister of civil aviation and a long-time air force commander. Susannah George, NPR News, Cairo.

Some of the more intense demonstrations8 are taking place near the famed Egyptian Museum. Antiquities9 chief Zahi Hawass said Cairo citizens protected the museum from would-be looters yesterday.

"When I came this morning to the Cairo museum, I found out that last night few people tried to enter the Cairo museum. But thanks God that some Egyptians, very good Egyptians, tried to stop them."

He said that two looters did managed to get into the museum and destroyed two mummies.

The Afghan interior ministry10 says a suicide bomber11 on a motorcycle killed the deputy governor of Kandahar today. According to the report, the attacker ran into a car, taking the deputy governor to work in the provincial12 capital. Three body guards were wounded. The Taliban claimed responsibility. The southern province of Kandahar is a stronghold for the Taliban and has been the scene of several attacks in recent weeks.

A man is in custody13 in Los Angeles suspected of threatening retired14 Congresswoman Diane Watson. Officials say he was arrested at the office of his parole officer yesterday. They say he won't be released on bail15 because he's on parole for making terrorist threats. Watson had retired from Congress last year after serving the Los Angeles area for 30 years.

A Pennsylvania woman accused of traveling to Europe to support a violent holy war may be preparing to plead guilty. NPR's Carrie Johnson reports on the legal troubles of a woman known as "JihadJane".

She was born Colleen LaRose. But last year she attracted worldwide attention after investigators16 said she played into their worst fears. LaRose is a middle-aged17 woman from suburban18 America with blond hair and green eyes. She allegedly tried to recruit other people who could travel around the world for terrorist plots without attracting law enforcement attention. "JihadJane" was one of her many nicknames on Jihadi websites. LaRose is scheduled to appear in court in Pennsylvania early next week for a change of plea hearing. Law enforcements also say that signals a plea deal is in the works. Carrie Johnson, NPR News, Washington.
