Anti-government protests in Egypt have entered a third week, as President Hosni Mubarak tries to come up with concessions that would end demonstrations.

Today, Mubarak set up a committee to recommend constitutional changes, such as term limits for the president. Protesters say they still want Mubarak to leave after nearly 30 years in office.

We get an update from Egypt with Jeffrey Fleishman, Cairo Bureau Chief for the New York Times.

This program aired on February 8, 2011.
