From NPR News in Washington, I'm Lakshmi Singh.

A series of explosions including suicide blasts is blamed in at least 27 deaths in the southern Afghan city of Kandahar today. Authorities say more than 50 people are wounded. The biggest attack was on a prison. Officials believe insurgents may have been trying to free fellow militants. Another explosion occurred near the residence of President Hamid Karzai's half-brother Ahmed Wali Karzai. He heads Kandahar's provincial council. There is still no word on who's behind today's suicide attack in Northwest Pakistan where at least 11 people were killed. The blast was the second major strike in Pakistan in less than 24 hours.

The latest tally of votes in Iraq's parliamentary election shows Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki leading in the crucial province of Baghdad. NPR's Quil Lawrence reports the results are still preliminary with less than 30% of the votes counted.

Baghdad is Iraq's most populated province and a key battleground between the three leading electoral slates. Despite high-profile bombings here over the past six months, it appears that Prime Minister Maliki's claim of improved security has won over residents of the capital, though it will still take days, if not weeks, to certify the results. Difficulties with a computer system have put Iraq's election results at least a few days behind schedule. Several candidates charged serious irregularity in last Sunday's nationwide poll, but international observers say the problems are not severe [severely] enough to affect the outcome. Maliki is expected to get the most individual votes but it's unlikely he'll win an outright majority. And political party horse-trading may still turn Maliki out of office in favor of a compromised candidate in the months to come. Quil Lawrence, NPR News, Baghdad.

Thousands of anti-government protesters in Thailand, many of them wearing red shirts in support of a former prime minister, were flocking to the capital. They are demanding new elections in that country.

In the US, the storm that's stretching much of the Mid-Atlantic threatens flooding in several major cities. Mary / Jordan reports Philadelphians are among those exasperated with a difficult winter.

Ask those who live in Delaware Valley about the latest weather event, and you might hear "thank heaven, it's not snowing". But the heavy rain and high winds forecast for today are not to be treated lightly. Meteorologists are calling for totals of two to four inches of rain, some spots possibly seeing five inches. Those of us who finally got to clear trees and branches downed by February's snows will probably be out there again next week. Winds today will be gusty, especially down the Jersey Shore, and the grounds are saturated, meaning, according to the experts, vulnerable trees might topple. Power outages are being reported and there have been some delays and cancellations at Philadelphia International Airport, but there are also flights that are on time. The city begins the clear-up locally overnight and then the clear-up begins again. For NPR News, I'm Mary in Philadelphia.

From Washington, this is NPR News.

President Obama's weekly address tackles reform in education. He is proposing a redo of the No Child Left Behind Law which was passed during the Bush administration. The president talks about the need to make American students more competitive with young people abroad. He is expected to send a blueprint to Congress on Monday. This is that president also tries to push through other major initiatives on jobs, financial regulatory reform and health care.

The US has no plans to Americanize the conflict in Somalia. Those words this week from a top US diplomat who denies that the US is helping Somalia's government fight a group on a US terrorism blacklist. We have more on this from NPR's Michele Kelemen.

While the US supports Somalia's transitional federal government or TFG, assistant Secretary of State for Africa, Johnnie Carson, says the US is not directly helping it fight the al-Shabab militia. "We do not have any American US military advisors on the ground. We are not planning, coordinating any of the TFG's military operations." Carson says the US has provided about 185 million dollars to support African Union peacekeepers in Somalia, and the US remains a major supplier of food aid though the UN agency that handles that has had to suspend much of it for security reasons. Michele Kelemen, NPR News, Washington.

The Vatican today is defending Pope Benedict XVI against claims that he tried to hide abuses by the clergy in Germany. Today Vatican spokesman Federico Lombardi told Vatican Radio that attempts to link Benedict to an alleged cover-up have failed.
