Egyptian protesters continue to confront President Hosni Mubarak's 30 year reign. The embattled president has named his intelligence chief and most trusted aide, Omar Suleiman, as vice-president in an attempt to hold onto power. We check in with Ahmed Rehab in Cairo. He’s the executive director of the Chicago chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations and he went to Cairo to participate in the protests. Also, Sadiqa Basiri Saleem, co-founder of the Oruj Learning Center in Afghanistan, advocates for educating Afghan women and girls and raising awareness about their rights to education, healthcare and civic participation. She’ll talk about the thousands of women and girls she’s helped and the challenges they still face in Afghanistan.
