CAIRO — Hundreds of anti-government protesters on Tuesday marched in the Egyptian capital chanting against the country's President Hosni Mubarak and calling for an end to poverty.

The demonstrators sang the national anthem, carrying banners denouncing Mubarak and saying Egyptian elections are fraudulent.

The protesters were heavily outnumbered by back-clad riot police, as security forces deployed in a massive operation across Cairo ahead of the first Tunisia-inspired rally in Egypt. No violence was immediately reported.

At the steps of the Lawyers' Syndicate, dozens waved the national flag and called for the end of Mubarak's rule.

Police said 15 members of the opposition Muslim Brotherhood, which has backed Tuesday's rally, were arrested in another Cairo neighborhood.
