Egyptian security forces were inside the People's Assembly building in Cairo, just outside Tahrir Square, to prevent the storming of the building by protesters, Al Jazeera reported Monday.

At least 13 people have been killed in four days of clashes between opponents of army rule in Egypt and security forces.

The People's Assembly is the lower house of Egypt's parliament.
