CAIRO - Protesters laid siege to Egypt's Interior Ministry on Friday, extending a rally against the military-led government into a second day in a show of anger triggered by the deaths of 74 people in the country's worst ever soccer disaster.

Several thousand demonstrators remained in the streets around the ministry in Cairo as night fell. For the most part, the only vehicles in the usually congested downtown area were ambulances that ferried away casualties from clashes with police.

Underlining the tension, ambulances had to intervene to extract riot police whose truck took a wrong turn into a street full of protesters, a Reuters witness said.
