In Pakistan, opposition leader Benazir Bhutto threatened to launch more protests if President Pervez Musharraf doesn't meet her demands. She is calling for Musharraf to retire his military post and adhere to Pakistan's constitution. Musharraf declared emergency rule this weekend.

Bhutto says she's prepared to organize a march from outlying Lahore to Pakistan's capital, Islamabad, in order to pressure Musharraf.

Meantime, Pakistanis say a state of fear is gripping the country.
