Mubarak selects Ahmed Shafiq, a former air force commander and aviation minister, as his new prime minister, preserving the top three political jobs for men with military links.
The lawyer of Ahmed Shafiq, a candidate for the spring 2018 presidential elections in Egypt, says she met him in a hotel room in Cairo following his arrest the day before in Dubai, U.A.E., after saying earlier today that his family didn't know his whereabouts.
Egyptian state television forments the unrest by reporting that "Israeli spies" have infiltrated Cairo, leading to an increase in antisemitic sentiment among the pro-Mubarak forces attacking people and journalists on the streets.
President Hosni Mubarak orders his new prime minister Ahmed Shafiq to preserve subsidies, control inflation and provide more jobs as he battles an intense popular revolt against his 30-year rule. The announcement is read out on state television but has little effect as protesters vow to continue demonstrating until the Mubarak regime falls.
