    Welcome to CNN Radio News Day.

    In Egypt protesters continue to crowd the streets. They are angry about steps taken by Egyptian President Mohamed Morsey last week to expand his power. Today protesters also expressed displeasure with the draft of a new constitution which they view as undermining the rights of women and religious minorities.

    Scott MacLeod, Managing Editor of the Cairo Review of Global Affairs says people are correct to be concerned. "For example the military can still hold military trials for civilians," MacLeod said "it's putting a band-aid on the old constitution instead of really reforming the old constitution."

    The largest trial to date concerning atrocities committed during the reign of Argentina's military government got under way this week. From 1976 to 1983 the ruling junta targeted political opponents killing, kidnapping and torturing some 30,000. Victoria Montenegro's parents were among those disappeared. She was raised by a military couple who told her that her parents were killed in a shootout.

    When she discovered the truth, that the people who raised her were part of the regime responsible for her parents death, she was shocked. "It took me several years to assimilate my new identity, and find peace about my true background. " Activists hope the trial will help bring closure for people like Montenegro.

    Thirty years ago today the iconic Micheal Jackson album Thriller was released. It's still the best selling record in the world. Lisa France is CNN's Senior Producer for Entertainment and she says there will never be another album like Thriller.

    Not only did the album make Jackson a star but she says it changed the entire industry. “[Thriller] changed the way people viewed music in terms of wanting it to be more entertaining and wanting artists to push themselves to the next level,” France says.
