Cairo's 'march of a million'

Anti-government protesters plan to march on the presidential palace.

    Anti-government protesters in Egypt say they will march from Cairo's Tahrir Square toward the presidential palace. Some have even threatened to storm it.

    State television has been broadcasting messages urging people to stay at home as trains heading to Cairo have been stopped, but an estimated 100,000 people have defied authorities' attempts to disturb the rally.

    In the square, some have hung an effigy of President Hosni Mubarak from a lamp post.

    Al Jazeera's Alan Fisher reports.
