CAIRO (AP) -- Police have opened fire on a massive crowd of protesters in downtown Cairo, killing at least one demonstrator.
Thousands of protesters are trying to storm the Interior Ministry located in the heart of the city.
At least one body was seen being carried out on the shoulders of protesters Saturday. Many people were wounded as well.
It was not immediately clear whether the riot police were shooting live ammunition or rubber bullets.
Massive anti-government demonstrations are sweeping through downtown Cairo, defying a government curfew and demanding the ouster of President Hosni Mubarak.
