More than 100 people have been killed in six days of unrest in Egypt.

And as protests intensify, President Hosni Mubarak has demanded that the new prime minister, Ahmed Shafik, push forward reform and anti-corruption efforts and restore confidence in the country's economy.

In his remarks made on Sunday, Mubarak said that Shafik's priority is to tame unemployment and create jobs. He stressed the importance of taking new, effective and continuous moves to further political reform through dialogue with all parties, including the opposition.

Shafik was named the country's new prime minister on Saturday.

In the capital Cairo, police forces were ordered to return to the streets on Sunday, after a two-day absence, to coordinate with the army to restore security and control violence amid the ongoing protests.
